    Freezing The Totals Column

    Tim Lynch

      The request is to freeze the row total column when scrolling.  Attached is a sample workbook.  As you scroll through the manufactures to the right, they want the total column to freeze next to the header so it is always visible.  I know Tableau should not be used like Excel but it is just one section of the dashboard.

            Hi Tim Lynch,


            check the below steps how to do it


            Step 1: Create a calculated field like below


            step 2: Click on the created calculated field and covert that to discrete

            Step 3: Drag the Calculated field next to the product Name Dimension


            Step 4: You can see an error like below you can ignore that that clicking ok because you are about place discrete field so that for discrete tableau wont be able to show the subtotals


            Step 5: You will be able to see grand total next to product dimension


            Step 6: After Dragging the horizontal bar


            Hope this detail explanation helps
