    Getting around the 16 column limit - using PDF and Underlying Data

    Darren Chapman

      Good morning,


      I understand that what I am asking lies outside the Tableau base case. However I am attempting to use Tableau for all my organisations reporting (including legal and fiscal). Many such regulatory reports exceed 16 dimensions and would not pass regulatory controls to simply download to excel and provide data that way. It needs to be locked, ie a PDF or a direct from Tableau print. 


      The concatenation of 16+ columns into column 1 is not an option here.


      Is there a way to export the underlying data directly to a PDF (as opposed a .csv first? This would solve all my problems - thanks.
