    Broadband mapping tutorial not working: counties unknown

      Hi,

       

      I'm starting with Tableau Public 7.0.1

      Following the first tutorial for Broadband mapping.xls, that is Video 01: How it Works

      I'm using the Excel file on the same page that can be downloaded here:

      http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/dl/sites/default/files/xls/Broadband%20Mapping.xls

       

      Now, if I open this file, it recognizes the field names fine and shows in the left column everything like it should be.

      However, when I click on County and click Show Me - Map, it processes and then says >3k unknowns.

      So all counties are unknown, the same for states.

       

      If I open the accompanying twbx file, it shows the map correct.

      After removing all sheets and removing all dimensions from the first sheet, I can redo these actions and now it shows the map correct.

      Any idea what is going wrong here?

       

      For the import I chose exactly the same options as in the demo (the defaults that is)
