Q. Explain Mini Chart?.What do you mean by sub reports and how we can create them?
With the help of Mini Chart we can set type of modes instead of values in table mode. We can also change the colors.Read this QlikView Tutorial to learn more about QlikView now.

Q. What is Pivot Table?
Pivot Table:
A pivot table is better at the time of grouping. We can also show pivot table like a cross table which is a beneficial feature. But there is one disadvantage of it which is if we have to sort a pivot table than we have to sort it first according to the first dimension then to the next.Are you interested in learning QlikView? Well, we have the QlikView Training Course to give you a head start in your career.

Q. Which graph we will use for two years difference sale ?
BAR Graph we will use.

Q. What is Straight Table?
A straight table is much better at the time of sorting as compared to the pivot table as we can sort it according to any column as per our choice. But it is not good for grouping purpose.

Q. What is Dimensions?
Dimensions allow data examination from various perspectives.

Q. Explain about Normalized Data?
Well Structured Form of Data, which doesnt have any repetition or redundancy of data. It’s a kind of Relational data. It’s mainly used in OLTP kind of stuffs Denormalized Data – It’s a whole bunch of data without any relationship among themselves, with redundancy of data. It’s mainly used in OLAP kind of stuffs.

Q. What Is Star Schema ?
The simplest form of dimensional model, in which data is prearranged into facts and dimensions is known as Star schema.

Q. What is Snowflake Schema ?
A snowflake schema is a difference of the star schema. Snowflake is used to improve the presentation of particular queries.

Q. Explain interval match?
The internal match is prefixes with the load statement which is used for connecting different numeric values to one or more numeric interval.

Q. Explain internal match function()?
Internal match function is used to generate data bucket of different sizes.

Q. What is Container ?
A container object is used to keep multiple charts. We can use a container object to keep many charts in the same box.

Q. What do you understand by extended interval match function()?
Extended interval match function() is used for slowly changing the dimensions.

Q .What are the new features in QV 11?
Container Object;Granular Chart Dimension Control; Actions like, clear filed; meta data,etc are the new features in QV 11.Give your career a big boost by going through our qlikview training videos now!

Q. Explain joins and its types?
Join is used to convert the given data and whenever we are using joins for converting data its is known ad Data Merging.
It has many types:
a. Left join
b. Right join
c. Inner join, etc

Q. What is Left Join?
Left join specifies that the join between the two tables should be left join, it uses before the word join. The resulting table only contain the combination among two tables with the full data set from the first table. When we have more than one common field between two or more tables then we have synthetic keys.

Q. Define right join?
Right join specifies that the join between the two tables should be right join, it uses before the word join. The resulting table only contain the combination among two tables with the full data set from the second table.

Q. Explain Inner Join?
Inner join specifies that the join between the two tables should be inner join. The resulting table should contain the full data set from both the sides.

Q. What are modifiers?
Modifiesr deals with the Fields name.
For example: sum({$<Region=>}Sales)
Returns the sales for current selection, but with the selection in “Region” is removed.

Q. Explain Identifiers Syntax?
0- Represents the empty set
1- Represents the full sets of records
$-Represents the record of current selection
$1-Represents the previous selection
$_1-Represents the next selection
Bookmark01-Represents the Bookmark name

Q. Explain 3-tier architecture of Qlikview Application?
1-tier: Raw data is loaded and we create QVD
2-tier: QVD is converted in business login and the requirement of business and data model is created.
3-tier: Reading all QVD from 2-tier and we make a single QVW.

Q. How does Qlikview stores the data internally?
Qlikview stores the data in QVD as QVD has data compression capability. Qlikview has better performance than other BI because of its memory analytics approach.

Q. Explain the restrictions of Binary load for a QlikView Developer?
Binary Load can be used for only one application means we can only read the data from one QVW application and moreover set scripts is also a restriction.

Q. For a QlikView Administrator, differentiate between subset Ratio and Information Density.
Subset Ratio: It is used for easily spot problem in key field association.it is only relevant for key fields since they are present in multiple tables and do not share the same value.
Information Density: It is the field which contain the percentage of row which contain the non-null value.

Q. What is the use of Optimized Load?
Optimized load is much faster and preferable especially for large set of data. It is possible if n o transformation are made at the time of load and no filtering is done.

Q. Differentiate between keep and joins?
Keep and joins do the same functions but in keep creates the two tables whereas join only creates the one table. Keep is used before the load or select statements.

Q. Define synthetic Key?
Synthetic key is the key where two or more tables consists more than one common column between them is called as synthetic key.

Q. What is incremental load in Qlikview Architect?
Incremental load is nothing but loading new or changed records from the database. With the help of QVD files we can use incremental Load.

Q. Differentiate between set and let option in Qlikview?
Set: it assigns the variable without assesses the expression.
Let: it assigns the variable with assesses the expression.

Q. Define Qlikview Resident Load.
Resident load is a part of loading data in Qlikview application. It is used for loading data in tables which is already loaded in Qlikview application.

Q. How we can optimize QV application?
It can be optimized by creating the data into qvds. When complete qvw application is changed into qvd than this qvd will be store in the RAM.

Q. What is mapping load?
Mapping load is used to create the mapping table that can be used for replacing field value and field names.

Q. Define apply map.
apply map is used to add fields to the tables with the help of other tables. It can be used as joins.

Q. What is concatenation?
It means sequence of interconnected things i.e. any column or row which is related to each other can be connected through concatenation.

Q. Define NoConcatenation.
NoConcatenation prefix is used to force the identical tables as two separate internal tables.

Q. Define connect statement.
It is used to establish a connection to database with the help of ODBC or OLEDB interface.
