    How to change data formats in Summary Tab ex avg, lat, long (Data Export)

    Scott Wei

      Is there a way to change the format in the export functionality of Tableau. In particular the summary tab  under the data export functionality.  I am looking to trim all my fields down to 2 decimal places. Everything is fine and formatted in the viz/dashboards. Its just not coming out the way I like it

       

      --- The underlying data source is formatted exactly how I would it to be so, so not problems there.

       

       

      For example, Longitude and Latitude has trailing decimals places (auto-generated by Tableu) I would like it to display just two decimals.

       

       

      Also I am using an average calculation. The measure that it calculates off of is two decimals places in the underlying but the summary brings it out as far as necessary. I would like to trim that to two as well.
