    Date fields and non-summed data

    Kathleen Uehling

      Question from a newbie to Tableau and data analysis. I am having a lot of problems using Tableau because our internal excel spreadsheets are not formatted properly.  Here is an example of a sales growth indices we use:

      Product CodeState1/31/20072/28/20073/31/2007
      581498Total U.S.1.001.071.21
      581498AK1.001.121.24
      581498AL1.001.161.20

       

       

      We have many excel spreadsheets showing historical timelines of growth arranged by month-end in columns for indiviual states.  My question is whether Tableau provides an easy way to display all of the date information on a histogram without summing the values on an individual monthly basis?
