Issue

Tableau calculation results displayed on scatter plot may change after converting the data source connection from live to extract.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 

Resolution

Bring the field that contains unique row id into "Detail" mark cards and change the table calculation direction to compute using "Specific Dimensions" instead of relative directions like "Table Across".

 

Cause

Row order is not guaranteed currently when changing the live data source connections to extracts.
The results from table calculation using relative directions like Table(across) may change after taking an extract using Tableau Desktop.
