    can you sort by the second row

    Dan Hoyal

      Is it possible to get Tableau to sort by the SECOND row in work sheet?

      I have text values in the first columns and counts in the second.  It default sorts by alpha based on the first column but we need it to sort on the numeric values in column 2.

      EX:

      A  3

      B  9

      C  1

      D  5

      needs to become

      B  9

      D  5

      A  3

      C  1

       

      I can right click on the second row and choose 'sort', but nothing I do in there does anything.


      Thanks,

      Dan
