This looks like an assignment issue rather than an internal tableau issue.
I was able to create a similar workbook and had no issues. I also looked at your workbook and reassigning the country flags manually to correct this easily.
I was unable to get to the custom shapes folder. If you could provide this, I will see if there is an assignment issue with Tableau, but at present I do not.
I was hoping that Tableau can pick these up without the need to manually assign them...
But this is a good solution for now.
But as requested, here's a link to the shapes folder with the Flags, for reference.
Dear Rohan & Alistair,
Thanks alot for the replies.
It seems the solutions you are recommending are to check and correct the flags that are misplaced each time I use these shapes.
I would also like to know why the only misapplied flags are for the DRC and Djibouti.
Why are the rest all accurately matched?
Thanks for your time.
The assignment of flags is done purely on the names provided within the Shapes folder.
As you will see, if you open the shapes folder, the flags are in the correct order. When you open the shapes file within the workbook, these two flags have swapped. What this is showing is that the Capital R in DR Congo, is forcing this ahead of Djibouti, and not after as you would expect.
Renaming the flag to to Dr Congo will rectify this issue that i have tested.
Just another note,
I have tried DRC and Drc. Drc provides the correct result so it is the capitalization within the naming convention that is where the issue lies.
