Ruth, sad to say, but ...
Hi, i have Tableau 7 and connect to a cube.
Is a far too honest a description of your situation. Few folks on these forums deal with 'cubes' and when you mention V7, most folks are going to pass on you Q, because they long ago deleted it from their computers. The only guy I know of that might take an interest in your Q is Russell Christopher.
Hope he can help you.
I had to laugh when I saw your reply, Shawn. I don't blame them!! I'm having so many problems with the combination of cubes and v7. Thanks for your honest feedback and for taking them time to explain. I'll give Russell a try.
Glad you found my comment humorous. That seems to be the response I've been going for of late. You probably got Russell's Out-Of-Office response, but I assure you he's seen your post -- and will either respond (or hide) from the challenge.
Heya Ruth -
Don't think I can comment too much on this except to say "sounds like a bug". To really did into it, we'd need a backup of your cube.
Out of curiosity, have you tried the same thing on v8?
Sorry for the delay in replying. I didn't realise i could download v8 alongside v7 so was just sorting that out. Unfortunately, because our data contains senstivie customer information I cannot forward it to anyone. I know that limits your ability to comment further. But just to answer your question ....
The connection error turned out to be an issue with the workaround I was using. Because placing dimensions in sets meant that they could not be selected in the actions, I was placing the dimension directly on the charts, as well as the set, and then hiding one of them. Once I removed that, i am now just left with the 'missing field' errors. I have tested it on v8 and have the same problem. If the dimension is in a set, and I select the dimension from the drop down menu under Target Filters, I get 'Missing Value' errors.
