The Table Box in QlikView is a sheet object which is useful to show several different fields simultaneously from one or more internal tables. Let us see the steps involved in creating a table box in QlikView with an example. For this Table Box demo, we are going to use the data present in the following Excel table.
From the screenshot below, see that we are loading the above specified excel sheet into the QlikView.
Right-click on the Main tab and select the Sheet Properties.. to change the tab name as per requirements. Here, we are changing it to Table Box
