    Use parameter/calf field without restructuring data

    Joshua Preston

      I'd like to get a search/filter box on my viz without restructuring the data. I hope this is possible using a parameter and calc field.

       

      Currently, this  Parameter isn't working. I'd like the parameter to filter the headlines by topic (see screenshot)

       

       

      The topics are only in two columns (there are 25 topics). I know I could put each of the topics in their own column and use an IF THEN or CASE statement in a calc field, but I want to avoid making 25 columns:

       

       

      Can anyone help with a how to solve this issue? thanks. much
