    Unable to change primary data source for mapping

    Susan Oner

      Hi all, I'm new to Tableau, am wondering how to accomplish this:

       

      I'm trying to filter points on a map using dates (year) and a measure (both coming from data source 2).  Geocoding information is coming from data source 1, tables are joined and seem to be working with the measure.  The trouble is that when I try to pull in the date it is treated as an attribute and doesn't let me filter.  A previous poster with this problem was told to switch the primary data source (make primary secondary) but everytime I do this and hit apply, it doesn't work.  I tried to re-build in another worksheet, but this time the longitude/latitude measures are disabled.  Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

      Thanks, Susan
