    How to Summarize Data after Duplicating Records From Joining Two Tables


      I have joined 2 tables together and have duplicated records.  The first table has more records than the second and I understand that when joining the second table to the first I will be duplicating table 2.  I need to know how to handle this issue.  A summary of my issue along with the attached files are below:


      The first table looks like this:    

      Data Set 1.jpg

      The second table looks like this:

      Data Set 2.jpg

      When I combine the tables through a join I THINK they look like this:


      Data set 1 left join Data set 2.jpg


      I completed the join in Tableau and did some analysis, the resulting views along with what I need the views to be are shown below:


      View one appeared correct summing on Value 1:

      The second view also appeared correct but thie view is not posted, but is attached in the tableau file.


      The incorrect views are shown below along with what I need them to look like when I summarize data on table 2:

      Wrong View 1.jpg

      Wrong View 2.jpg


      I have attached the excel file along with the tableau file as mentioned.  How do I correct the issues identified.


      Thank You
