    I do not understand this data stuff, Discrete, Continuous... I'd like to figure it out.

      I have been using Tableau for a few months now and I still just fumble around when it comes to deciding which of these date options to pick. I literally just keep messing with combinations until the visualization looks like I want. Has anyone explained this stuff in plain language?

       

      What does this mean?

      Discrete fields always result in headers being drawn whenever they are placed on the Rows or Columns shelves. Continuous fields always result in axes when you add them to the view.
