    One to many relationship

    Kim Mowrey

      hi all!


      I'm relatively new to this Tableau thing.  My company is using mySQL for our data source.  The database has 3 tables.


      Table 1:

      LoanID     ClientID     Approved     Verified     Funded

      Table 2:

      LoanID     DocumentType     DocumentDate

      Table 3:

      LoanID     DenialReason


      The problem being that Table 2 and Table 3 are both one to many.  Meaning LoanID 1 could have three documents and 4 denial reasons. I'd like to join all three of these tables but haven't found a way to do it where I don't duplicate approvals, verfieds and fundings.


      Can anyone help?  I can create some basic excel documents if you think that would help as well.

          Hi Kim,

          If you can create basic Excel sheets that mimic your data and build those into a packaged Tableau workbook, that would probably help the community to solve your issue.  Packaged workbooks or data samples always help get a question answered faster (I learned that the hard way).
