    Doing calculations with calculated variables

    leonor.keller

      Hello,

       

      I have two related questions concerning Tableau calculations:

       

      1. Is it possible to make table calculations with already calculated values. For example:

      I have the calculated variable "admission compared to yearly average," is it possible to then find the growth rate of this calculated field?

       

      2. I believe the above would be possible if one could simply save the Tableau calculations as new variables added to the data set, rather than have them always tied to the sheet (and table) in which they were created. Is there a means of doing so?

       

      Thank you,

       

      Leonor
