Columns Out of Order in Exported Crosstab with Table Calculations in View


Published: 15 May 2013
Last Modified Date: 30 Aug 2018

Issue

The order of columns in a crosstab exported to Excel does not match the order of columns in the crosstab in Tableau Desktop.
There are calculated fields used in the view.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Excel

Resolution

If possible, remove fields from Detail and/or Color to retain the same column order as the view when exporting.
 

Cause

Fields placed on Detail and/or Color may impact the order of exported columns when calculated fields using table calculations are also used in the view.
