Alternate States and Bookmarks

Bookmarks capture selections in all states defined in the QlikView document. When recalling a bookmark, the selections in all states will be applied.

It is possible to make use of specific states contained in a bookmark within an expression. For example, this expression calculates Sales over the set generated by the selections defined in bookmark BM01 for the state ’Group 1’.


sum({[Group 1]::BM01} Sales)

Note: Bookmarks that reference a state that no longer exists (the state was removed by a developer) will ignore the missing state(s).
