Issue

The Show Empty Columns and Show Empty Rows options on the Analysis > Table Layout menu are unavailable (grayed out or dimmed).

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Blended data

Resolution

Option 1:

If applicable, use INDEX(), LAST() or FIRST() table calculation functions to filter the view without affecting the underlying data.

Option 2:

Remove the dimensions that are in the secondary data source from the view (that is, do not use data blending).
