Numeric fields in Explore not only as metric, also for rows and columns


  • Kent Southerland

    Same issue, we have location numbers, this is very frustrating to have to rework an XLS every time to get the location number the first column.

    Dear Kent,

    meanwhile I found a nice workaround.

    Here's my example.
    I have numeric customer no. field:

    In explore it's available as metric only.

    Now I create a new "Standard calculated attribute":

    Give it a name and type the following formula:

    value(name of the metric)


    After saving this new attribute it's available for rows & columns:

    Thanks to Florian for this workaround!

    Yes! Thank you, Florian! Just what I was looking for. :)
