    Creating an additional column/dimension within an existing dimension

    Jeremy Miraglia

      Hello:

       

      I am rather new to Tableau and have looked at the forums over the past few days for an answer, but to no avail.

       

      Basically, here is what I am trying to do:

       

      I have a dimension, "Status", and within this column, we have: A, B, C, D. I want to create a new column under this "Status" dimension, that calculates: A + B + C, and has a new column name, E.

       

      So it would look something like this:

       

      Column: A | B | C | D | [E] - the new column name.

       

      I have tried using "IF statements", but it has been giving me errors.

       

      Please point me to another post if this has been answered.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Jeremy
