    To show or not to show... that's the question

      Hello tableauders,


      I'm a beginer with Tableau and I need to find a solution for this:


      I have two data connections and I join by different dimensions (I can't do the join at database level because data are in two different databases - Mysql and InfiniDB) One of these dimensions is the country


      The problem I have is that I related these two datasets by country field and I have to put country on the shelf in order to the relationship works.


      But in the dashboard I wouldn't like to show the data by country. I just want to display the information agregated by my country selection.


      Can I avoid showing the country  dimension and show only the totals? Is it posible to related two datasets without use the join dimension on the report?


      Thank you very much!
