    stop Tableau from converting string cal to Dimension

    jon rios

      i am trying to write a formatting calculation for metrics driven by a parameter.... i assume Tableau converts it to a dimension because the final result is a string of numbers (do not want that)

       

      if i drag or convert back to measure, it wraps it in an aggregation, which changes my end result.  How can i create this formatting calculation and stop Tableau from taking control and treating it how Tableau wants to.... if i take this dimension calc and place it on labels shelf it distorts my graph
