ResolutionWhen viewing data using the View Data feature, even though the information displayed by default cannot be changed, the columns can still be dragged and dropped; and column can be sorted from ascending to descending.
Note: after closing the "View Data" window, the sort and order modifications will not persist.
CauseIn the View Data window, the columns are organized as follows:
- Tableau Desktop first lists Dimensions and Measures that are created within Tableau Desktop, such as Calculated Fields, Groups, and Sets, in alphabetical order.
- Tableau Desktop then lists the remaining Dimensions and Measures from the data source in alphabetical order.
Additional InformationIf you would like a feature that allows users to control what data is shown under View Data, please vote on the idea on our Community Forum: Control What Displays in View Data.
