    Creating parameter with string datatype from an extract

    bonny mcclain

      Screen Shot 2018-06-20 at 11.33.32 AM.pngWhen attempting to create a parameter I am not able to list any of the values within the parameter--only the current value. I want to be able to create a calculation that allows me to filter based on different values but only the current value appears in the parameter filter.

       

      I am curious if this is a restriction based on the extract created in Tableau Prep or am I missing something basic?

       

      In case parameter isn't the way to go, the objective is to assign a numeric value to each of the values so I can calculate a disease activity index. For example different value for activity not attempted, unable to do, with MUCH difficulty, etc....
