Unable to Synchronize Axis When Using Measure Value As an Axis


Published: 23 Jun 2015
Last Modified Date: 21 Jan 2017

Issue

When creating a dual axis chart using measure values, the Synchronize Axis option might be unavailable.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

1. Right-click on the axis that does not use a measure value.
2. Select Change Data Type > Number (Decimal).

Cause

Measure values are interpreted as a float data type, regardless of the data types of the underlying fields. Float and integer data types cannot be synchronized.
