    Create calculated dimension using secondary data source dimensions

    Ignasi Villaseca

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm kind of new to Tableau, so I apologize if this is a very basic question.

       

      I want to create a table where the user can pick the dimension he wants to see. In order to achieve this, first I have created the following parameter:

      Second, I've tried to create the calculated dimension like this:

      I am attempting to use the ATTR function because the necessary fields (Provincia and Poblacion) are not in the primary data source:

      ...But I've read that, as I'm using the ATTR function, that cannot be interpreted as a dimension. So I honestly don't know what to try next.

       

      Any help?

       

      Thank you very much.
