Unable to Select a Data Source to Edit Relationships When Many Data Sources are Used

When a workbook contains a large number (~14) of data sources, the Edit Relationships dialog does not allow certain relationships to be established.


Tableau Desktop 


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.0.3, 9.3.9 or a later version. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop

Option 2

Create a relationship in the opposite direction. Once this occurs, it should be possible to start a blend in the desired order on a worksheet. This may require checking that the linking icon appears in the data window for the secondary data source.


This behavior was related to a known defect (ID 554169) that has been fixed in a Tableau Desktop release.
