    Dual axis formatting - hiding first year for one but not for the other

      Hi all, I just really started working with Tableau so apologies if this question is too basic.

      Trying to keep it short, I have managed to plot a measure (i.e. Value($) (bar)) and its calculated year-on-year growth rate (grey line).

      I need to NOT to show the growth rate for 2006 whilst still showing the other measure. I tried everything I could think of but I just can’t manage to get rid of the 2006 year-on-year growth rate value without also eliminating the “Value($)” bars.

      Has anyone ever come across anything similar?


      P.s. I am using this formula to calculate the y-o-y growth rate so that it returns 0 for the 2006 year in each region


      if attr([year])> 2006 THEN (ZN(SUM([Value($)])) - LOOKUP(ZN(SUM([Value($)])), -1)) / ABS(LOOKUP(ZN(SUM([Value($)])), -1)) ELSE 0 END
