When using formula in dimension, upon selection of the dimension, the selection area shows the formula.
How can it be changed to not show the formula rather the individual component of formula? Using a master dimension solves this but looking for alternatives where in I dont have to create a master dimension or change the formula
Using aggr() for your calculated dimension will definitely hide the expression/formula. For example if your calculated dimension is something like --> if(field1 = 'A', 'value1', 'value2'), then you just have to enclose your original expression with aggr and use your original dimension as your sort/summarize field:
aggr( if(field1 = 'A', 'value1', 'value2'), field1) so Qlik sense will perform an indirect selection. In other words, every time you make a selection in your calculated dimension, you'll see field1 values in the selections bar, instead of the calculated dimension.
