Hello David Golden
Filtering across data sources can be done by use of Action Filters (in the example used, this can be done if the field [State] exists within the view of each of the worksheets). I have updated the original workbook so that a selection from the StateView sheet supplies views from the other two data sources related to the selected State.
I hope this helps.
Kudos to Patrick!
David - I am marking this 'assumed answered. Let me know if it's not.
Glad to provide something helpful.
Correct. Thank you for marking. I’m new to the forum, and accordingly wasn’t certain how to mark.
By the way, I believe my big confusion…. Even though the KB article I referenced was clear (visually) on this … is that I naively assumed that the visible filter (from “Show Filter”) would control the filtering action, while in fact only selection on the List View itself controls the filtering. Obvious after I looked at your work! It’s funny how one can have blinders on….
Best wishes and thank you again!
Your welcome David.
You'll find the forums a great place to learn about Tableau and many of the tricks and tips to working with it.
We have a previous forum post regarding self learning of Tableau here that may be of interest: Re: Best resources for self learning?
Again - welcome to the forums.
Excellent to know these sources.
I got a boost recently from reading through ‘Tableau Your Data!” by Daniel Murray.
I’ve been surprised by the ramp-up time in learning the product.
I’m starting to understand the design paradigm, and picking up more of the nuances.
