Is this only for Tableau Desktop? Are you able to post a packaged workbook where you are seeing this? Is it for all workbooks or only this one specific one?
this is happening to me too! and I've individually cleared every thing i can think of and/or tried to reapply row banding (which is what i want) all to no-avail!
I'm also getting (what I think are....) "Mark Borders" on lines even though supposedly this isn't an option for lines!
This all seemed to happen when I opened an 8.0 workbook in 8.1.
I look forward to any advice you get from this post.
my Tableau 8.0 worksheet display exactly the way they should be on 8.1
really want to know how things turns out.
some of mine were fine - some were not. That is what is so puzzling! I have compared all the settings and i can't find any difference between the ones that are behaving and those that are not.
I will send info and samples as you suggest.
Hi Kurt (and Matt)
I logged a support request and have been dialoging with a fellow named Nick. He asked that I put together a sample of the workbook that worked OK and the almost identical one that was doing all the weird shading. (I did this and sent them).
Guess what!? I discovered a curious workaround while putting the workbooks together!
For the workbook that is wonky, if I make a copy of the original excel file and save under a NEW name with NO other changes, then within the work book I “connect to data” to this identical file and then “replace the data source” with this identical file (with a new name) – it cures the problem!
[It screws up a few ordinary (fixable) formatting things like the colors I’ve chosen for some charts and number formatting for some series – I’m sure if I wasn't an amateur then I would know how to avoid this!].
So the process of replacing the data source with a new (identical) data source is an amateur way to correct the problem! At least in my particular situation.
So the "data replace process fixes it for me or is at least a workaround for this particular wonky workbook.
I don’t know if it would help you with your similar problem.
I’ll be curious to find out if you find a better way of fixing it or – indeed – why it happened in the first place! But in the mean time I hope this might help you!
That 75% trick works great--until you publish. The published workbook still has the same shading issue...very aggravating if you are trying to use color banding that suddenly stops being banded.
Has anyone found a better workaround? Recreating the data source is not a viable option for me since there are 50+ calculated fields, plus tons of aliases and field-level number formats in my normal data source. I can copy/paste the calc fields, but cannot afford the time investment to do the others manually.
I had the same issue. I created a new extract from the Excel file and it solved it. Painful to recreate all the calculations though.
I am having the same issue! My data connection has too many calculations that it would be very cumbersome to try to recreate. Is this a bug? Will it be addressed in a maintenance update?
