    Help with creating a 'Calculated Field'

    Daniel Fox

      Hello,

       

      I am new to Tableau. I need to perform a simple calculation/data manipulation:

       

      I have a dimension called 'Board Name'. Its a list/grouping containing the following groups:

      Reached_End-TypeA

      Reached_End-TypeB

      Reached_End-TypeC

      Started-TypeA

      Started-TypeB

      Started-TypeC

       

      I want to create a new calculated value which is: 'Shifted_Value-TypeA' = 'Started-TypeA' - 'Reached_End-TypeA' etc etc.

       

       

      I really don't understand how I go about creating the calculation.

      Thank you all for your help in advance.
