Question:

What causes CAL files to corrupt in QlikView?

Answer:

CAL files can become corrupt from posting documents into the root folder (which is default for QlikView), random server restarts, accessing QlikView using older versions of ie plugin can technically cause instability, which could influence corruption if the server is having issues. There are also a large number of bugs resolved for PGO files, going up to about SR12, which resolved PGO corruption issues, which is what holds the cal info

None of these are an absolute guarantee though. CAL file corruption is hit or miss if it actually hits you. You can tell its corrupted by time stamps being extremely far off from each other, or Japanese looking characters in the names.

Question:

What is the best best approach to generate a clustered and stacked bar chart?

Answer:

You can build an extension object using Qlik Sense’s new TreeData Structure for structuring the data and d3 for visualizing each data element on the structure into a rectangle.
