    Tooltip Bar Chart - Error

    Jonathon Stewart

      Hello,

       

      I am attempting to incorporate a bar chart into a tooltip per these instructions (http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/barsintooltips).  Unfortunately, for bars over about 25%, the bar does not reach the desired length and a question mark shows up at the end of the bar (see attached screenshot).  If I scale the bar values down by a factor of 10 or more then the bars fit into the tooltip, however, the differences between the bars are difficult to see.  I've tried changing to the "pipe" character (" | ") with no luck.  When using the pipe, the question mark doesn't appear, however, the bars still don't extend as far as they should (see screenshot # 2).  Does anyone know why the bars will only go so far? 

       

      Cheers,

      Jon
