Changing table column name using variable



I have a column which I've renamed "Year to Date" in a table visualisation. If I set a variable somewhere to May is there a way to program the column heading to be "May YTD" (i.e. put the month name in automatically)


Thanks for your help,

I don't beleive this is possible to make dynamic for the end-user as it is defined at load stage.


I would recommend adding a new measure which returns a string which you can then use as a title, either in the visual itself or on a card above.


I don't know your specifics but something like:


Title = if(hasonevalue([Month]),min([Month])&" YTD","YTD")
