I'm not aware of any good way to do this, but what I typically do is try to delete it. When you do that, if it's used, Tableau will warn you that it will affect other sheets and will list each affected sheet. Just make sure you click No on the prompt.
The field 'Sales' which is a data source field and it does not have 'delete' option.
HI Sai Sri B
There is one tools of Interworks
This tools will help you to extract all meta data information like which Dimension and Measure has bees used where and how many calculated field you are using and where you are using etc.
It's chargeable but still you can use trial version for 14 days.
Please mark correct and Helpful if it works for you.
Oh right, that only works for calculated fields.

One option is to right click on the datasource and hide unused fields. If sales is not present in any of the worksheets, then it will be hidden and it will show in gray. If you need to know specific sheets its used in, then you can save the workbook as a TWB, open the TWB in notepad and then search for the field, I've had to do this prior and it works...
Yeah, but that only applies to a calculated field, unfortunately.

Here's an idea.
Duplicate the measure you're looking to inspect.
This will create a calculated field which just references the original.
Now right-click on the original measure that is used throughout your workbook and choose "Replace References" then select your new calculated field:
All of the usages, on all sheets, of that original measure will be replaced with the new calculated field.
Now, since we're using a calculated field, you can try to delete the calculated field and Tableau will warn you that it's being used:
It's a bit of a roundabout way of getting there, but I think it should work.
