Thanks for the link, It was a little helpful. However, I am unable to open the workbook as it says it was created in a newer version.
I'm using Tableau 10.0.5.
In addition, it looks like I will be facing similar issues. I only want the UP/DOWN arrows on a single column not for all measure values.
Is this even possible?
Here is the idea:
So you already have the arrow field which uses a formula to govern whether it should be an up arrow or a down arrow. You have the other field which is the actual measure. You can create a third field by concatenating these two. Something like:
[arrow] + STR([measure_field])
You can then add this to the columns. The only drawback here would be that the field would not be a measure. But I suppose this should not be a problem. Let me know if you have questions.
Hope this helps!
