Tableau (IN) operator for calculations

Tableau In operator

Tableau IN operator is a logical function used to test whether a specified value matches any value in a list of comma-separated values, a set, or combined fields.

(Note: The IN operator supports string, date, numeric and Boolean data types)

Where the value of <expr1> can be a set, list on values or combined fields.

This expression returns TRUE if SUM([Sales]) matches any value in the comma-separated values
