    Overwriting data sources in Tableau 8.2

    Felix Sander

      Hi Tableau Users,

       

      Since I updated from Tableau 8.1 to Tableau 8.2 I have difficulties in exchanging my data sources. In 8.1 I could simply exchange the data source and every column with the same name was automatically overwritten and it took me just a few seconds to create the same visualizations with a different source.

       

      In 8.2 Tableau creates automatically new column names. Like: "country (new_source)" instead overwriting "country". When I try to remove the "(new_source)" it gives an error message saying that the name is already given.

       

      Is there any chance to have the old overwrite possibility back?

       

      Kind regards
