    Measure fields coming in as Dimensions due to Tableau seeing nulls in first couple of rows.

      I am about fed up with Tableau and trying to get it to read what columns are Dimensions and what columns are Measures.  I have text files that have nulls in some columns at the beginning of the file and so Tableau puts them as a string and a dimension.  If I try and move it to a measure it shows up as blanks because Tableau for some reason hates me.  This is my biggest and most annoying issue with Tableau.  Anyone want to tell me how to get around this?
