Tableau Tip Tuesday: How to Replace References When Your Field Names Change
Have you ever had a field name change in your data source? It can be a real pain to update each sheet in a workbook one by one. Conveniently, Tableau has an option called “Replace References” that allows you to swap one field out for another all in one shot.
