Adding or Removing a Dimension Changes Which Values of Other Dimensions Display

Issue

When adding or removing a dimension from the view, values of another dimension appear or disappear

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Make sure any measure filters are set up as intended.

Cause

A measure filter removes marks according to the values of its measure in the view.

When a dimension is added to the view, or removed from the view, measure values may change.

Thus, this behavior is expected when using measure filters.

Additional Information

The attached workbook contains two examples of this behavior.
