    Tableau, Essbase and Diacritics

    Valerie Taylor


      We're testing out using Tableau, with Essbase as the datasource, but running into an issue.  Some of our dimension member names use diacritics, which Tableau doesn't seem to be able to resolve.  We get an error:  An error occurred while communicating with data source xxx. In the details, we get:  Essbase database error 1260046: Unknown Member <member with diacritic> used in query.


      The diacritic in the member name that Tableau displays in the error message has been replaced with a question mark.


      This is happening on Tableau Desktop v8.3.


      Any help would be appreciated - thanks in advance!
