The following data is loaded into QlikView, which results in the F1 value B not having any associated value in field F2.

In a straight table object the F2 value for B is NULL and not MISSING as expected.

Before calculating the straight table object, a JOIN operation is performed in memory to generate the data set over which the straight table is calculated. In the same way as with JOIN operations during application reload, missing values are populated with NULL. For this reason the missing values are never seen in a straight table.

Pivot table is the only chart object that will display missing values with the missing symbol, but only when it is pivoted in a way that missing data combinations occur. 


Due to the technique used to create the in memory data set, there is currently no way to accomplish missing values symbol in straight tables.
