    Data Extract Limited By Parameter Filter

    Tim Hill

      I worked through a custom date filter issue in the below thread but now I have a new problem with the extracts.  My filters work just fine with a live data connection but it seems the extract is limited by whatever the filter is set to at the time.  This seems really strange to me as no other filters seem to do this.  Can anyone see why this filter would limit the data pulled into the data extract?  I want to have it set to "Last 6 months" by default but when the overnight extract is created you can no longer view anything past that time window.  It seems that I have to leave it set to "All" so that all data is present in the extract and can then be filtered.  Is this a bug in Tableau or something with how I created this custom filer?
