    Adding most highly ranked item within a sub-category to Tooltip

    Becky Lehotzky

      Hello,

       

      I'm working on an analysis of the relative popularity of baby names over

      time. The viz in the attached workbook shows the percentage of babies born

      each year with the most popular name, broken down by *** (e.g. Mary was the

      most popular girls name in 1905 and was given to 5.19% of girls born that

      year).

       

      I'd like the Tooltip to show the actual baby name associated with each data

      point. I've tried several approaches (including

      http://kb.tableau.com/articles/howto/finding-the-top-n-within-a-category)

      without success. I'm not sure that I actually need to rank the items first.

      I've tried just adding  directly to the Tooltip, but that hasn't

      worked.

       

      Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any insight you can offer!
