Selecting Fields

When you prepare data, only the fields you select on the data preparation page are available for subsequent use in a visual. By default, all of the fields in the table or file you are preparing are selected. You can toggle a field by either selecting or deselecting its check box in the Fields pane.

You can also toggle a field by choosing the ellipsis that appears next to each field on hover and then choosing either Exclude field or Include field.

You can select or deselect all fields at once by choosing either All or None at the top of the Fields pane.

If you edit a data set and exclude a field that is used in a visual, that visual breaks. You then need to fix it the next time you open the relevant analysis.

Searching for Fields

If you have a long field list in the Fields pane, you can search to locate a specific field by typing a search term for Search fields. Any field whose name contains the search term is shown.

Search is case-insensitive and wildcards are not supported. Choose the cancel icon (X) to the right of the search box to return to viewing all fields.
