Does this give you the solution you need?
Parameters will select the fields shown (and can be changed to Yes/No easily if that's the desired outcome).
Yes very similar Thanks....but my report only has calculated fields and not dimensions as the columns.How do I populated the parameter with the calculated fields?
If they're calculated fields that are Measures, that is actually built in to Tableau. Bring the "Measure Names" pill into your Columns (or Rows). Then bring "Measure Names" also into your Filters, and create a quick filter. You can then select the Measures you want to show up.

Thanks....but how do I select only limited measure names and not show all of the measures?
I mean a selective measure names filter?
Someone actually asked the exact same question today, which I saw and answered first:
Basically, there are two ways of doing this. One is exactly the same as described in my first post, just make your parameter values the names of the Measure you want. When you create the calculated fields pointing the Measure to the Parameter, it will show up as a Measure and you can treat it as a Measure Value.
The other is hiding the Measures you don't want to see, which is an option when you right click on a Measure (as long as it's not being used in any other view).
You can also vote for this being a Tableau feature here:
Is this what you're looking for?
