Season's Greetings

This QlikView script may be the most important one that you ever see (or not, mostly not).

Follow these steps.

1.   Create a new QlikView application and add the following script:

   For i = 0 to 100 step 5

Tree:
LOAD
RowNo() as id,
1 as Period,
$(i) As Branch,
-100+$(i) as X,
$(i)+10 as Y
AUTOGENERATE (1);

LOAD
RowNo() as id,
2 as Period,
$(i) As Branch,
0 As X,
$(i) As Y
AUTOGENERATE (1);

LOAD
RowNo() as id,
1 as Period,
$(i)+1 As Branch,
0 As X,
$(i) As Y
AUTOGENERATE (1);

LOAD
RowNo() as id,
2 as Period,
$(i)+1 As Branch,
100-$(i) as X,
$(i)+10 as Y
AUTOGENERATE (1);

   Next

      Reload the document.

2.   Add a new Scatter Chart.

3.   On the General tab, set the Title in Chart to:

   =chr(8902)

      In the Title Settings, set the font size to 26 and turn on Bold.
   
4.   On the Dimensions tab, add Period and Branch.

5.   Turn on Advanced Mode on the Expressions tab.  Remove the expressions that have been added and add the following 3 expressions:

   =X

   =Y

   =10+Avg(fabs(X))

6.   Under the first expression, set the following Background color expression:

   =RGB(1, 121, 111)

7.   On the Style tab, select the flat, connected bubbles Look (3rd one down in the 2nd column).

8.   On the Presentation tab, turn off Show Legend.  Add a Reference Line on the X-Axis with a value of 0.  The color should be the same RBG as in step 6.

9.   On the Axes tab, turn off the Forced 0 option and turn on the Hide Axis option for both axes.  For the Y Axis, set a Static Min of -5 and a Static Max of 110.

10.  On the Layout tab, turn off the border (or set to 0 pt).

11.  On the Caption tab, set an appropriate caption.

With a little tweaking (using Ctrl+Shift to move bits around), you should be able to come up with something like this:
