Changing the view causes measures from secondary data sources to show unexpected numbers


Published: 19 Jun 2017
Last Modified Date: 19 Jun 2017

Issue

After changing the level of detail in the view, then values from a secondary data source may change to unexpected values.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Re-activate the linking field for the affected data source

Cause

If the linking field is in the view, then Tableau Desktop will automatically activate the linking field. When the linking field is removed from the view, then Tableau Desktop will de-activate the linking field. If the linking field is manually activated before adding the linking field to the view, then removing the link field will not affect the activate state of the link.
