Totals for Measure Names Appear at Bottom of View

Issue

When attempting to get subtotals for measure names, the block of all totals appears at the bottom of the view, rather than after each "measure" pane.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

As a workaround, create a false header to display before [Measure Names] on the Rows shelf and use subtotals to display [Measure Names] totals. (See attached workbook)

1. Create a calculated field for "1"
2. Place the calculated field before [Measure Names] on the Rows shelf
3. Navigate to Analysis > Totals > Add All Subtotals
4. Right click on "1" in the view and de-select "Show Header"
