Unable to Use Groups, Filters and Calculated Fields When Using DB2 Extract

Published: 26 Sep 2016
Last Modified Date: 21 Nov 2016


When opening views created in versions 10.0 of Tableau Desktop in Tableau Desktop or Tableau Server that use a DB2 extract, any character/varchar string fields with trailing spaces lose the trailing spaces. This can cause groups to fall apart, filters to stop working as expected, and calculated fields to stop working.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.0
  • Tableau Server 10.0
  • DB2 Extract


This behavior is related to a known defect (ID: 566232) that has been fixed in the release 10.0.3 of Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server.
