    Data import is Truncating data

    Zach Drew

      I am running tableau 7 and trying to import data from a mysql database.

       

      The import works but one of the fields is a text data type and can contain messages which are up to 1024 char in length.

      when I pull the data into tableau, the field in question is getting munged up.

       

      There should be some 9 million unique values but all tableau is showing is F and "

      Is there some limitation on the size of a given field?

       

       

      The data is internal software log messages which contain sensitive proprietary information so I can't post a workbook example.
