Thanks - that doesn't really address the issue.

At the 2014 Tableau Conference, there was a session (actually, probably more than one, but at least one that is relevant to this) that talked about unsupported Tableau hacks. In it, they talked about how to extend beyond the 16 column limit. It involves editing the .twb file, which is just XML.
- Open the .twb file in a text editor, like Notepad++
- Search for text that looks something like the following:
<format attr='row-levels' value='16' />
<format attr='row-horiz-levels' value='16' />
NOTE: I looked for "row-levels" in a .twb with the default 6 column limit, and it was not found. When I increased it to 16, it was found.
- Change the value(s) as needed for your application
- NEVER use the Table Options/Advanced dialog again - it will get overridden.
I have NOT tested this, but their demo looked pretty convincing. Let us know if/how it works!
Bill - fantastic solution, works a treat.
Still slightly limited by PDF capability but will resolve 99% of issues.
Awesome! Thanks for that report! Always glad to be of help.
Yes, I have tried this, Whether it is accepted or hack way
