    What is the difference between queries and aggregations in Tableau?

    Daniela Shasha

      I'm trying to understand the difference between queries and aggregations in Tableau. As far as I understand it, the Tableau data engine runs queries to pull data from databases/data sources into Tableau AND aggregation relates to performing calculations on a set of values (calculated fields, table calcs, etc.). Is that right? I’m confused on the materials I’ve found online. Thank you!
