Hi Johan -
1) Space considerations are keeping me from pushing another tabular view onto this dashboard.
2) Setting the top level of a range just makes both ends of a grand total rows/columns show up as the hottest / strongest highlighted.
One of those links has stumped Andy Cotgreave, which tells me it is pretty much unhackable.
@Tableau - The solution to this problem is to provide a diverging pallette that does something like green-red-white; i.e., instead of putting white in the middle, pop it into the end and the totals will natively paint white.
Hi. I am only 40 minutes into Tableau and I already see this as a "problem".

Thank you for your feedback. As Bora said, this feature is currently in Beta for 9.3.
Here are some links to the feature.
Please give it a look and let us know what more we can do.
Hi Everyone -
I fought with this some more and found some ways to hack a psuedo-solution of sorts, but it will depend on your data somewhat how far you can go.
By creating a calculation that pays attention to index, first, and last, you can exclude row totals from the colorization issue. See tab1 in the attached workbook. Some dimensions, such as dates, can also be utilized / backdoored to give you a solution that will also exclude column grand totals. See tab2 in attached workbook. This isn't a pretty solution, but will work for some use cases. I bet if someone was clever they could find a better way. Until 9.3!
