QlikView for Developers Cookbook

Stephen Redmond (from the well known QlikTips.com) has been busy writing a sequel to QlikView 11 for Developers which I reviewed a couple of months ago. Unlike it's predecessor, QlikView for Developers Cookbook looks at a serious of "recipes" for solving well known QlikView problems.

Coming from Stephen you can guarantee some advance QlikView content and great advise. I'm eagerly awaiting my copy for review.

You can grab your own copy now from http://www.packtpub.com/qlikview-developers-cookbook/book

The UltraEdit Function List with QlikView Script Files

Since the release of version 1.0 of the QlikView wordfile for UltraEdit I've had a few people ask me what the UltraEdit function list support offers and how to use it, so here goes.... 

It might seem obvious but you need to have installed the QlikView wordfile before the functionality described below will work. If you haven't already, details of how to do so can be found on the QlikView for UltraEdit page.

The function list can be shown in UltraEdit by either going to "View -> Views/Lists -> Function List" on the menu bar or by pressing F8. By default the function list is shown on the right hand side of the screen but can be dragged and docked to just about anywhere you want it to sit.
