Issue

When using data blending, nulls, asterisks or other unexpected values might appear in the view. Numbers in the view might be different depending on which data source is primary.


 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Link on only one field. Choose the deepest level of detail needed for the view. For more information, see Defining Relationships.

Cause

Using multiple linking fields when data blending can limit the data pulled in from the secondary source.
