Error "Resource Limit Exceeded" When Opening View Containing LoD Calculation

When opening a view containing an LoD calculation that uses a string parameter in Tableau Server, the following error may occur:

Resource Limit Exceeded
Computing the current visualization has exceeded the resource limit.

Additionally, when opening the same view in Tableau Desktop, an 'Executing query' dialog may be displayed indefinitely.


  • Tableau Server 2020.2.10-12, 2020.3.5-9, 2020.4.1-5, 2021.1.0-2
  • Tableau Desktop 2020.2.10-12, 2020.3.5-9, 2020.4.1-5, 2021.1.0-2


As a possible workaround, use an integer parameter in place of the string parameter in the LoD calculation.


This behavior is related to Issue ID 1267074, which is expected to be resolved in an upcoming release.
