ResolutionThe issue can be fixed by placing quotes around each instance of the literal. For instance, if the custom format is #,##0;Minus #,##0, you will need to add quote marks around "Minus": #,##0;"Minus "#,##0.
CauseBy the current design, Tableau Server cannot handle prefix and suffix literals that are not quoted. Tableau Desktop does not do any checking of the custom format. That is the reason that axis label formats are changed after a view is published to Tableau Server if the custom format contains unquoted literal.
