    Using Aliases with Cubes

    Sam Bruce

      According to the document Understanding Functional Differences Between OLAP and Relational Data Source Connections | Tableau Software I get that "When connected to a cube, you cannot override dimensional cell values with the Tableau "alias" feature".  What I don't get though is that you can't create an alias for a calculated measure.  For example, if you create a Quick Table Calc for Percent of Total say, you can't alias it.  You're left with the big long "% of Total <measure> along table (Down)".

       

      Am I missing something?  Should I be creating this measure in the cube?
