    Question follow up - Cross Data Source Filters.

    Alex Clift

      At the User Group meeting on Weds 13th April we had a question that I said I'd follow up on - it was about Cross Data Source Filters.

       

      I confirmed it is possible to do this in Tableau already and these links will help to explain how:

      One of my colleagues also said this:

                The answer isn’t quite yes or no, it depends on the scenario. You can filter across both data sources if you’ve linked on the common field, but as soon as you remove the blend key than it doesn’t work.

       

      I also learned that this is one of the features that is being improved in Tableau 10 – see here:
