What is your data source? What data types are the fields you want to use as measures being displayed as? Strings of some sort?
Thanks for helping me Russell, the data source is a CSV file and the data types are just numbers. The reason I am so confused here is b/c I basically imported the same spreadsheet before and had no issues. All I did was went back and revised some of the column headers and now all of a sudden I'm having some major issues.
I understand that the values in the text files are numbers, but what data types does Tableau think it is seeing for those fields?
It sounds like some of the editing you did to the headers may have changed the way the Jet database engine (which is what parses text files for us) is reading the file.
If you have access to Microsoft Access, it might be interesting to see what happens when you import this CSV into that too - Does Access do the same thing?
Sounds like you might want to consider creating a schema.ini file to tell Jet exactly what types of values are in each column:
Thanks Russell, I *think* I may have figured out the issue. With my initial workbook used "connect live", when I tried to import the new csv I chose "import all data". I went back to "connect live" and it looks like everything works now.
Can you explain why this is? Seems so strange...
