    Cities not being picked up as a City, thus no map generation

      I have had no success in starting to look at the Case Schiller index in map view (original file can be found here). I believe it has to do with the formatting of the City, State. Thus I stripped (via excel formulas and changed the headers to look something like this:

      YEARPhoenixLos AngelesSan DiegoSan Francisco
      January 1987 59.4354.7946.96
      February 1987 59.8955.2247.30

      See my attached file after modifying as above.


      Still no luck. I am baffled. I've done maps before successfully in the past, although a new Tableau user. Any insight would be helpful b/c I plan to use this index on a regular basis as it is an industry standard that comes out monthly.


      The home page where that has the methodology and maybe some insight is http://www.standardandpoors.com/indices/sp-case-shiller-home-price-indices/en/us/?indexId=spusa-cashpidff--p-us----
