Hi,

If you change it on the script like this:

[First Name] as Name

Is there a possibility to do this. Without changing it in the script?

Hi chanty,

he want to give another name to the whole field.. I don't see how it will work like this..

Create a master dimension as follow:

if("First Name"="First Name","First Name")

and name it as Name

Guys,

Avoid calculated dimensions, especially for a reason like this.

It messes up set analysis in Qlik sense, and as a rule of thumb it's not a best practice move.

If you don't want to change the script, just add a rename command at the end of the script.

rename field XX to XXXXX;

Regards,

Eliran.

Hi Omar, is this working only on the last version ?

because I want to make it a try, on the horizontal bar, I have this shown:

if("First Name"="First Name","First Name")


I wrote a name and even an expression label..
