    Secondary Data Source Groups in Tableau 8.02

    ben cho



      I have two data sources in which I've created a group in the secondary data source and would like to use it in displaying by primary data source (colors on a stacked bar chart). However, whenever I try the group in the secondary source is greyed out. I understand in previous versions there was an option to explicitly create a primary group from a secondard data source, and that this was supposed to be automatic in Tableau 8.0.


      I've also tried pulling in the original dimension from the secondary data source into the primary display but when I try to manually create the group I get the following error: "An error occurred communicating with the data source; Invalid field formula due to limitations in the data source."
