    Datasource within data source

      Hi,

      I have a question regarding the product. If I have a database table that has mulitple rows and columns. If one of the cells within each row and column is an XML string that is of format <propertyName>value</propertyName> can Tableau provide reporting for the content of the cell as well? for example

       

      column A                  column B                                                

      john                          <firstname>john</firstname><lastname>davis</lastname>

      dave                         <firstname>dave</firstname><lastname>martin</lastname>

      ......

       

      Basically I want to have the XML also be treated as the data source for Row 1. Is that possible?

       

      Thanks

      Al
