When live connecting  to a published data source, the Edit Set dialogue in Tableau Desktop shows all rows in the viz instead of just the set members.

For example, assuming there are 5213 records in the data set, the dialogue shows 278562 records which are all the records in the data source when editing the data set.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.3.3
  • windows 7
  • Tableau Data Engine


This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 707093) which has been fixed in a recent release of Tableau Desktop.
