Yeah, its named differently on spanish, I guess. Actually changing it to  a normal Master Dimmension makes the trick. I guess drill downs show the formula rather than the label

Whatever you name the master item is what will display in the visualization.

hi Dudley,

You have to UNLINK it in your visualization from the master items and then you can change the label for your visual.

Click on the link and the Lbel will appear for you to change.

Do you mean it is a drill down dimension?  If you cannot unlink it then you should be able to edit it directly and the change will be reflected
