    How to Delete Alias Name

    philip ken

      All, How to delete Alias name from column header? Here is my issue: I had done Table calculation, Percent of total on Sales Revenue. So that It will display Percent of Sales. Everything is fine as expected. Now I had changed the column header from default Tableau Name  to my own name which is "Sales %" and saved (Right Click on Column Header=> Edit Alias). No issue so far. Now again I change to "% of Sales" and show to user. Now user want column name to change to "Sales %" which is very first Alias name. Now when I try to changed it, it is throwing an message saying that 'Alias name is already exits'. It is not allow me to put back Alias name which is already created. I understand that..Alias unique name constraint. But is there any way we can reuse Alias names?
