Filter Not Applied To All Sheets When Using Multiple Data Sources

Issue

When you apply a quick filter to multiple sheets, some of the sheets might not be filtered.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Blended data

Cause

A sheet cannot be filtered by a field from a secondary data source.

For example, sheet A uses data source 1 as the primary data source; sheet B uses data source 1 as the secondary data source. If you create a quick filter on a field from data source 1 and apply this quick filter to sheet A and sheet B, sheet B will not be filtered.
