    How to stop a Dimension from getting aggregated (ATTR) as a meausre during data blending?

    habeeb.mohammed.0

      Hi,

      I have a "View By" calc ( along with a parameter: See by Param) which gives an option to pick the dimension the user wants to see on the report. This calc shows 5 columns coming from 5 different data sources which are blended to the main data source. Now when I am specifying these fields in a calc, tableau automatically is adding ATTR to the fields and the entire calc is getting converted to a measure which I don't want as there are other calculations which use this View By dimension.

      How do I keep a look up as a look up (dimension) without using any aggregation across multiple data sources? Any thoughts.
