    Can I synchronize "Measure Names" Filters?

    Chip Lynch

      I've attached a very simple workbook.  It's a dashboard with two sheets (this is using Tableau's sample data, mind you).  The sheets each display simple crosstabs.  My users want to select which metric will display.  I can get the "Measure Names" filter working fine, but I can't synchronize it across worksheets on the dashboard.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Key to the issue is keeping the formatting correct... some measures are dollars, and some are counts (integers), while others are fractions (real/decimals).  If I create a calculated field to pull the value from a parameter (rather than use the Measure Names shelf), I can't consistently format it properly.

       

      Either approach, or another is welcome.  I'm open to suggestions!

       

      Many thanks,
