    Tableau 6/7/8: how to export a filter's all values?

    Xinmin Shuai

      In Tableau desktop before version 6, I have no problem to export a filter's all values at one time.

       

      I attached a twbx (version 7) to show this problem only on Tableau 6 / 7 / 8

       

      Case 1:

      In Tableau, drag the column S/N to shelf Filter,  under Select from List, click on All, then switch to Custom Value List from Select from List,  the problem is nothing is listed in the text box.

       

      Case 2:

      But I can show not all S/Ns in the text box in following way.

      In Tableau, drag the column S/N to shelf Filter,  under Select from List, click on Alldeselect at least one item in text box,  then switch to Custom Value List from Select from List,  now the selected S/N in previous step are shown in the text box, then I can  press CTRL+A, then CTRL+C to export the selected S/N

       

      My question is why I cannot export a filter's all values at one time? Because Case 1 does not work.

       

      Is it a bug?
