Consecutive Spaces in Parameter not Rendering on Tableau Public/Server


Published: 13 Apr 2018
Last Modified Date: 13 Apr 2018

Issue

Consecutive spaces in string parameters are reduced to a single space after publishing

Environment

  • Tableau Public 10.5.2
  • Mac OSX 10.13
  • Text Files

Resolution

As a workaround, use the ascii whitespace character (ALT + 0160) instead of spaces. This character will not be trimmed.

Cause

This behavior is by design.
