    Help required for applying table calculation on a dimension

    sai lakshmi

      HI Everyone,


      I am trying to apply table calculation on a dimesnion,which is derived from a calculation.It returns string values.Is there any way  to apply tableau calculation on a dimension which holds string




      Here are the options am able to see when I right click on the dimension named "Diagnosis/Therapeutic code".It will be helpful if anybody provides suggestions and solutions to achieve this.


      Thanks & Regards

          Good morning


          I'm not clear on what you are trying to accomplish - can you provide something that outlines the expected results - as far as using a table calculation on  - yes there are some things you can do - e.g. lookup() that First etc


          this is just a simple example from superstore where sum(sales) > 1000 are High else Low



          I added a look back 1 value and then a first() calculation so you can see it can be done
