Most Talked about Thread

The thread Re: How do I use two parts of a pivotted column for x and y values on a graph? was posted by Laura Shireman on November 16th, 2017 at 11:47 AM. Deepak Rai quickly replied with a suggested solution as well as the ambassador Joe Oppelt stepping in for a brief moment to assist. Deepak offered several potential views with the given data source. In the end they determined the best method moving forward would be to re-shape the data in Excel prior to connecting to it in Tableau.
