Issue

When using action filters with blended data, the filters might not work as expected.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Option 1

Place the linking field in all worksheets that the action filter affects.

Option 2

Join the data using cross-database joins rather than blending.

Cause

Tableau Desktop cannot identify what information to use for the action filter if the field used for blending is not included in the views that are affected by the action filter.
