    LOD on Running Sum

    Ramya Nagaraju

      Hi,

       

      I've a calculated field to calculate the hits, and after sorting the hits, I calculate the cumulative hits. I need to include a dimension while doing the running sum, but I get an error while doing so. Please let me know a work around.

       

      Thanks,
      Ramya

          Good morning

          I little difficult to understand what you are trying to do without seeing your twbx workbook

          Based on the post title - an LOD is not a potential to the problem as stated - running totals are a cable calculation which is well below LOD's on the order of operation

           

          Image result for tableau order of operations

           

          There may be other ways to get the result you are looking for - other table calcs can be nested with your running sum - but can't tell from the description of the problem
