    Highlight multiples of a selected mark

    David Katz

      Hi, All --

       

      I have found this forum to be of great value and have learned a lot of techniques from reading the discourse.  I'm currently struggling with an issue that seems, from what I've read, to not be possible in Tableau, but I'd love to be proven wrong!

       

      I would like to be able to, upon clicking a mark, highlight all the multiples of that number in the present viz.  For instance, in the attached workbook, if I were to click on the number 10, I'd want the bars associated with (10, 20, 30, 40, 50) to be highlighted/selected.  I'm able to do this in the workbook by specifying a parameter to select the number (and an associated tolerance %, in case I'm close but not exactly at a multiple).  However, I need to be able to click an actual bar and have the highlighting occur based on multiples of what was clicked.

       

      I've tried doing this in multiple ways:  action filters, calculated fields, parameters, tooltips, etc.  Nothing seems to work.  I'd value any insights you could offer on this.

       

      I've attached a packaged workbook in version 10.5.  I'm using Tableau Desktop Pro.

       

      Many thanks,

      David
