    Can I ask for the user input in the report?

    Gagan Thapar

      I am new to tableau and I need to find out can I ask for the user input before running the report. e.g. in Crystal or some other reporting tool, user can provide the input and then the query is run on the basis of input. I don't know if tableau can do that.

       

      I need to create something like this. Following is my query.

       

      select * from TA where TA.B = ?

       

      Right now, the only option that I know is that load the full data of the table in the following way

       

      select * from TA.

       

      Then create the filter on the column. But I don't want to load the full data. I just want to run the query after the user has provided the input.
