Table Calcs Thursday Begins! Send Us Your Calcs Questions

By Ellie Fields March 16, 2011

It's that day you all have been waiting for: Table Calcs Thursday. As promised, we're setting aside a day for the new Tableau Table Calculations. We're taking any Table Calcs questions you care to bring. Just email calcs@tableau.com today and our crack Table Calcs Commandos will get right back to you.

What kind of questions? Any. Struggling with a calc? Wondering if table calcs can do something specific? Want to see if someone's done a similar calc before? Email us and we'll get you an answer.


Moving average of variable duration? No problem.

For those of you without specific questions, here are some resources:

  • The new Top 10 Tableau Table Calcs page takes you through popular calcs, from bump charts and moving averages to common baseline and more. Each example has tabs explaining step-by-step how to create the calculation, and you can download the workbook to inspect further.
  • A new white paper explains in depth what addressing and partitioning are and why they can help you create the right calculation.
  • You'll also find some great information in the online help as well as a on-demand training video.
  • And finally, there's an active community discussing and posting calcs in the Forums. More on that later today.

So take some time today to check out Table Calcs. They're a little prickly at first, but once you get to know them they warm right up.
