    How to export data sorted exactly as it appears in the workbook ?

      I am trying to figure out why the data exported from a workbook while viewing it from tableau server isnt sorted the way it is sorted in the workbook.






      Lets say i have this table

      Default Data.JPG



      Then i create a workbook where i specify that this data should look like this, (Description has been sorted from smallest to highest now )

      Sorted in workbook.JPG


      I upload this workbook to my tableau server and then view it and export the data from workbook using the export option as shown below.

      The data isnt sorted by Description as it was in workbook.



      Can someone tell me how do i do keep the exported data exactly the way it appears in my workbook.
