Selection in Qlik Sense does not show the expected dimension name in the current selections.
For example by selecting a value in the master item dimension MyDimension, the same value is shown as selected in the field Dim1.
Selections are always made in the data model's fields. The current selections presents the selection on a field level.
Selections in a master item dimension will reflect the selections in the field associated with the field. If Dim1 is the field used for master item MyDimension, the selections in this dimension will be associated with the field Dim1.
To get a different value in the current selections the field must be renamed during data load.
There are two main option for renaming fields:
- Use the rename feature to rename fields
RENAME Field OldFieldName TO NewFieldName
- Use a mapping table to convert field names
