    Incremental count of strings in a column

    james.diaz

      Hi, All. Is there any way to create a calculated field that would mirror Field 2 below:

       

      Field 1Field 2

      john

      1
      john2
      mary1
      jason1
      mary2
      george1
      joe1
      mary3

       

      This is very easy in Excel, but I can't think of a way to achieve this in Tableau. I need a way to get an incremental count of values as shown above. Any help appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
