    a work-around for cube date dimension - almost working

    Antigone Oreopoulos

      Hello.

      I came across this very recent blog post: Making the Date dimension ready for Tableau |

      which presents a very simple work-around for allowing the date dimension in a cube to function like a date.  I followed the instructions and everything works fine, but finally when I go to place a dimension i.e. year that has had the unique values changed to 'by name' vs. 'by key, and converted to a date dimension, Tableau crashes, every time.

       

      It seems like a very good fix that should work well,  but I don't understand why Tableau crashes when I try the field in the view now.

       

      If anyone would like to try this work-around and let me know how it works, that would be much appreciated.
