    Caculated fields

    Johann Lubbe

      Hi, I have a spreadsheet as source data where I need to perform a calculation to determine a value. If I do this in the "manage metadata" option and update my source spreadsheet, will this field still apply to new data?

          Hi Johann - yes, there is nothing special about the Manage Metadata view except it's an easy, holistic way to view all the fields in your data source. If you create a calculation here, then go through into a sheet to actually build a visualization, you will see the calculation in your Dimensions or Measures to the left. It functions exactly as a normal calculation would, you've just created it in a different place in the GUI.
