    Tableau Help - Creating Dynamic Superheaders for Measure Names

    Abhra Mitra

      I want to create dynamic super headers in Tableau. We can do it in Excel very easily by merging cells but I am not sure how to achieve that in Tableau. Currently I achieve it by placing floating boxes above the desired measure columns and sizing them appropriately. The problem with this approach is, if at some point there is are requirement  to add a new dimension column or expand a dimension hierarchy the superheaders don't move  as they are floating boxes.

       

      This is a very common scenario that I face in my daily work life. I have searched a few articles but did not get the desired answer and hence seeking help. Please find the attached excel for more details.
