1. Re: Add Table Calculation Vs Compute Using
David Andrade Jan 7, 2013 2:35 PM (in response to Karl Jensen)May I ask what version of Tableau you are currently using? I'm only seeing "Add Table Calculation" when I right click a Measure. This function allows you to customize the calculation type for any measures being used in a dashboard. I do not see "Compute Using" for any Measures I right click on. What options does it give you when you click it?
