Changing the Field Associated with a Visual Element

You can change the field assigned to an element in a visual by using the field wells, drop targets, or the on-visual editors on the visual. For pivot tables, you must use field wells or drop targets as this visual type does not provide on-visual editors.

Change a Field Mapping by Using an On-Visual Editor

Use the following procedure to modify the mapping of a field to a visual element.

  1. On the visual, choose the on-visual editor for the visual element for which you want to change the field.

  2. On the on-visual editor menu, choose the field you want to associate with that visual element.

Changing a Field Mapping by Using a Drop Target

To modify the mapping of a field to a visual element by using a drop target, choose a field in the Fields list pane and then drag the field to a drop target on the visual, making sure the drop indicator shows that the field is being replaced.

Changing a Field Mapping by Using a Field Well

Use the following procedure to modify the mapping of a field to a visual element.

  1. Expand the Field wells pane by choosing the expand icon.

  2. Choose the field well that represents the element you want to remap, and then choose a new field from the menu that displays.
