Calculated fields in Data Manager are not assigned a Data type in Qlik Sense.Article Number: 000052742 | Last Modified: 2019/01/17
When data is added, Qlik Sense interprets the field type of each field. The following field types are currently supported:
- Geo data
However, for calculated fields created in Data Manager, types cannot be interpreted.
Lets say we have a Date field already in our data model (StartDate). Now when I want to create a new calculated date field, I do this - Date(AddYears(StartDate,8)). The calculated field is created successfully, but its not detected as a 'Date' type field.
Statement from R&D regarding this: "we currently don't classify calculated fields by design (we don't allow the user to edit the classification on the calculated field either) but it's something we might be able to do now given that the profiling capability has evolved since the decision was made".
It has been taken as an Improvement request.
