With QlikView 10 a very powerful new feature has been added: “Associative Search“.
This feature gives the end user the possibility to search for values in a listbox considering associated data to get the desired results.
Instead of directly selecting/searching for the company named “YXZ Company” within the “Company”-listbox, you can enter the search-expression “Europe” and “Vienna” and you’ll get all “XYZ Company” if this company is associated with the region “Europe” and the city “Vienna”.

Stay tuned, in QlikTip #28 I will tell you more about how to use the feature “Associated Search” as a developer or application designer.
