TRL: Ratio of Ratios in Tableau – Nested Table Calc Example


I’m a little late getting this video up on this Blog (we recorded it more than a week ago)… but here it is: Joe Mako walking me through an example of a Nested Table Calculation, a Ratio of Ratios example.  He breaks down the problem itself, and describes how he reaches a final solution by evaluating all the necessary measures to make the final result appear on the screen.

The original Tableau Forums question is located here:

Keith Helfrich already blogged about the video, and I’m not sure I can add much more detail than what you’ll find in the video itself, Keith’s blog post, and the original Forums post.

The video can be watched below:

There is another video in the Think Data Thursday Video Library on Nested Table Calculations, although I’m not sure if there are audio/video issues in that video.  You can check it out here:

Please feel free to reach out with questions, comments, or if you would like to share ideas for some online Tableau collaboration!  I cannot say enough about how much I’m learning by putting myself out there and allowing other Tableau users, like Joe Mako, to share their knowledge with me via online screen sharing sessions.

Until next time.
