Issue

When using a dimension filter that on the Condition tab uses a formula including a parameter, then Tableau Desktop returns no results in the view

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 9.0 - 10.3
  • MSAS

Resolution

Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.4. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help.

Option 2

As a possible workaround, recreate the parameter by manually typing in all of the values. This issue only occurs with parameters using the "Add from field button" or when the parameter is created from the field.

Cause

This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 650687) which has been fixed in a recent release of Tableau Desktop.
