    Blended data: why is my field coming in as an attribute

    matt.lukoff.0

      Hello,

       

      I have 2 different Excel files with the common field being Month. I'm able to create a blend based on the month so that I can see the metrics from each excel compared against the common field of date BUT I'm unable to join the dimensions because Tableau thinks one of my dimensions is an attribute and not a dimensions (like it's correctly categorized the other). For all intents and purposes they are both just a column of text items in excel.

       

      Thanks.
