Issue

When connecting to Oracle Essbase and creating a calculated member, the "Parent:" options are always disabled, aka grayed out.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Oracle Essbase

Resolution

Oracle Essbase does not allow the parent member to be set for a calculated member, therefore Tableau Desktop disables the option.
