Even I am facing the same problem. Please let me know if you got the fix for this issue.
Also, I have gone though the document attached, and its a lengthy process.

Looks like I found the setting to enable the Text and Key in Tableau.
Right click on the Dimension --- > Aliases --- > Select the type of display.
Please find the snpahsot attached for reference
I was clicking on the wrong dimension that's why I didn't find this Aliases menu. What a relief, thank you so much
It's hard to find people working with BW and Tableau. May I have your e-mail or skype to share our experiences?
Hi, Julia ! Did you have a project, based on Tableau + SAP BW ? It's very interesting, as i plan to implement first such a project in Russia. It would be very interesting to ask you some questions about problems and limitations of such a configuration.

Hi Valeriy !
Yes I'm still working with SAP BW and Tableau. If you are not working with SAP BW extracts you will have tons of problems and limitations and it will take hours to do a simple thing.
If you have extracts here is the list of limitations :
No need to say, that these issues are not a big deal at all!
If you need more information you can send me an e-mail
Thanks a lot !) We haven't bought licenses yet.
If we talk about extracts, i think we need a server with lots of memory (RAM) for saving and supporting extract. ?
"Incremental extracts are not supported." - this means, that if i extract all my BW data, i cant add further data into it ?
"User hierarchies" - i wont be able to create my own hierarchies for drill-down ? ... Only hierarchies from BW ?
Can i use data as data type, or just as usual dimension ?
What about performance of an extract ? ...
What about entire feel of SAP BW + Tableau ? Do you feel, that integration is too raw ?
Did you try mobile ?
What about your project, was it finished, successfull ?
Could you, please, include the most complex dashboard, based on BW extract ?
Thanks in advance =)
Ashok, hi !
What can you tell about questions above ?
Thank you !
That's a lot of questions there!
I think it's better to create a new topic about SAP BW connectivity. It will give a better visiblity of this topic which deserves to be mentioned more often.
Then I'll answer your question with pleasure!
