    Distinct Colors for Top N

    Minat Verma

      Hi ,


      I am trying to colorize Top N (5-10) value of my dimension from a large data-set.

      For that I am using the dimension in the color-shelf.

      But the Problem is that since the data-set is large (contains > 300 unique values),

      Tableau Parses different colors for each member when a filter condition is changed.


      Can't I get same 5 colors whatever the Scenario be.

      I think it can be done by additional table calculation of Rank,

      but don't want to add unnecessary table calculation to my worksheet.


      I have attached a sample workbook with two approaches, set approach and direct to 5 filter approach.

      Any insight will be great.
