Can we use loop functions(for, while,do-while) in tableau calculated Fields? If we can, how can we use these functions in calculated fields and how can we initialize the variables which are declared in these functions?

  • No, we can't use the loop function in Tableau. There are few alternatives to do some calculations like that, using PREVIOUS_VALUE and other table calculations, but there are no loop functions in Tableau.

  • Because Tableau is not meant to be a data processing tool, rather than a data visualization tool. It means, Tableau engine is very good to process data, but only to perform "query-like" operations.

That’s all for now. But, if you would like to learn more about Tableau, check this Tableau Certification course by Intellipaat.
