    Calculated Field Question

    Siobhan Magee

      Hi all,


      I am new to Tableau so forgive me if this is an easy question!  I have a large dataset but the following is simplified to illustrate my question.  I have 3 columns of data:

      Number Payments: 0, 1, 2, 3

      Number Active: 100, 90, 80, 70

      Number Lapsed: 10, 20, 30, 40

      All I am trying to do is to calculate the % Lapsed of the total by payment.  The total is calculated by adding Number Active + Number Lapsed at Payment 0 so in this case it should be 110.  The %Lapsed therefore would be 18% at payment 1, 27% at payment 2, 36% at payment 3.  In Excel I would just absolute the sum of active and lapsed at payment 0 to calculate the %.


      It shouldn't be that difficult so I am missing something obvious.


      Any suggestions would be appreciated!


      Many thanks.
