I have a dashboard I update every week with new data. I have a coworker who also updates the dashboard who lives in Ecuador. I'm in the US. When I import files into the workbook, everything works fine. When he adds files to a union, a lot of the text properties change. The language defaults to Afrikaans and every time we change it to English it reverts back. The delimiter reverts to a custom character; changing it back to a comma doesn't do anything.
We have opened a new workbook and imported the CSV file. The defaults are off, but we can manually reset them and they are fine. As soon as we create a union however, it goes back to being wonky. We've reinstalled tableau and changed his language to English (it was previously in Spanish). Any ideas how to fix this?
The one thing I can think of off the top of my head is ensuring the CSV is in UTF-8 encoding. If that doesn't do the trick, or if it's already UTF-8, you might want to submit a Support case. I haven't heard of anything exactly like this happening before.
