    Creating a report with 35 columns

    HARI SARVOTHAM

      Hi,

       

      I want to create a report with 35 column,i know tableau supports only 16 columns.

      Is there any work around to achieve this.

       

      Thanks and Happy Weekend

          Place three sheets side by side (if they'll fit), with the same row headers, then hide the headers on the second two sheets.  I don't know if 35 columns will ever fit on one screen, though, and most people would have to ask: Why?  No human being that I know of can look at 35 columns and digest the information very well.

           

          You could also use a parameter to show 11 or 12 columns at a time.

            Instead of trying to squeeze all 35 columns onto one dashboard which will probably be useless and messy anyway, why don't you create a drop down list of the column headers and the end user can select from the list of which they'd like to see? You can even layer a few on top of each other. (this can be done by using parameters and calculated fields)

              Thanks Mr.Lutton.

               

              Will you mind looking at my discussion on Column versus Selected Columns pl?  I can think of duplicating, concatenating the columns here and I am not sure at this time how to manipulate the data to get and it right.
