    Tableau 8 - Calculated Field (and/or conditional filter) for Word clouds - filtering of conjunctions/Top 1000 English words

      Challenge:

       

      Filtering out conjunctions and common words for Tableau word clouds.  This is really a follow up from a previous post, now that we have the capability to do this.

       

      I have two files that may be of use (see attached ZIP)

       

      1: Displays count of words (contains macro)

      2: Top 1000 English words

       

      I'd like to have a CF that essentially filters these words out from a record set.  We do a lot of surveys with open text fields (Varchar MAX) and I think by creating this CF we'd get a much more useful view.  Who's up for it?  I think the CF will probably end up in the Calculation Reference Library!
