The List Box in QlikView is the most basic sheet object, which is to show all the records present in the selected column. For this creating a list box in QlikView example, 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 Employee excel sheet into the QlikView. Refer Import data from Excel to QlikView to import the excel tables.
