    Formatting with measure swapping

    Tim Case

      I'm doing measure swapping as explained in this article: http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/parameterized-measure

       

      The only issue I'm running into is that one of the measures in currency so I would like to format it accordingly. The other measures are all numeric so applying the currency format to the calculated field doesn't accomplish what I need. Is there a way to apply a conditional number format within a calculated field without having to convert it to a string, parse it, and concatenate it back together in the format I'm looking for?
