    How do I apply a labelling file to a dataset?

    Patrick Spicer

      Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, I did look but can't seem to find anything..


      Basically what I want to do is apply a labelling file to a dataset so that each field (relevant field or calculated field) shows the text string that corresponds to the value in that particular field, which is basically a load of numeric values that don't mean anything and I have to look between the two to see how they align.  These are all held in a separate lookup table I have in Excel set out as [Field name] [Field value] [Field label]


      I'm just wondering if there's a quick way of pointing Tableau at the lookup table to get the text labels easily into the view.   I've been able to do this one field at a time by blending but I have around 50 fields to do so seems a bit time prohibitive.
