    Stacking variables in a pivot table

    . capson

      Hello every one , new here, I have been using SPSS and my raw data is in Excel.

       

      I am trying to understand Tableau and am having trouble with what would seem a vary basic function, its pivot table maker.

       

      In SPSS or Excel or Access to create a pivot table you drag and drop a variables to the left drop space or the top drop space.

       

      The top produces a nested grouping of your variables and the left drop space produces a stacked grouping(unless you purposely nest the variables)but in Tableau all I can do is nest my variables in the left side drop space?

       

      Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong.

       

      Tank you
