Worksheets Appear Blank When Workbook Is Opened in a New Version of Tableau Desktop

When opening a workbook that uses a grouped dimension as a filter, but that grouped dimension does not contain any actual groups, in a new version of Tableau Desktop, the worksheets with that filter may appear blank.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.3


Use the Replace references function to replace all uses of the grouped dimension with the dimension that it is based on. Since there are no actual groupings in the grouped dimension, this replacement will have no effect other than clearing up the filtering issue.

Additional Information

If the filter is set to All, then the view on the worksheet might appear again, but there will be no single dimension member or combination of dimension members that will cause the view to appear without all members being selected.
