    Help on understanding Calculations

    Raiyan k

      Hi Team,

       

      I am facing issue in implementing the Calculations in Tableau.

       

      I want to understand as compared to Excel how calculations work in Tableau.

       

      I came to know about this forum and saw that this is really a great place to learn and lot of challenges over here.

       

      Can someone help me in understanding the Logical way of how calculations work in Tableau.

       

      I know the logic of what is to be done but not able to write the Calculations for any scenario i need to google it or ask my seniors which seems to be a bad impression.

       

      Can someone guide me on how Dynamic Date Calculations (YTD,PYTD,Dynamic Periods,Monthly,Weekly,Daily,etc), Window Functions, LODs work in Tableau.

       

      I know which functions to be used but not able to align/right proper calculations it properly to achieve the logic.

       

      Awaiting for reply.

       

      Thanks,

      Raiyan,
