When opening the Describe Field dialog box for a calculated field, you are unable to load the query and the following error might occur:
A query error occurred. Domain information not available.


Tableau Desktop


If the calculated field is from only one data source, perform the following:
  1. Right-click on the calculated field and select Edit....
  2. In the calculated field box, replace attr() with a different aggregation. For example, MIN or MAX. 
Note: The 'Describe...' option is not available if the calculated field contains fields from multiple data sources.


The domain for the calculated field is not well defined or cannot be defined because it is an attribute.
