You can duplicate an item on the shelf, and then re-use it for another calculation or for placement on another shelf of the visual.

To duplicate, follow these steps.

  1. When creating or editing a visual, determine which field variable you must duplicate.

    The shelves that support the alias option depend on the visual type, and are typically available for X and Y axes, Measures, Dimensions, Colors, and Tooltips.

  2. Click the icon to the right of the variable.
