  • Tableau Prep Builder before 2020.3.1
  • Tableau Server (Prep Conductor) before 2020.3


Option 1

If you use Tableau Prep Builder, upgrade it to 2020.3.1 or later.

Option 2

If you use Tableau Prep Conductor, upgrade Tableau Server to 2019.4.17, 2020.1.14, 2020.2.11, 2020.3 or later.


This behavior is related to known issue ID 1103614 and 1177410 that is fixed in more recent version of Tableau Prep Builder and Tableau Server.

Additional Information

If you create a workbook using the published data source, field names display as expected without garbled characters.
