    How is a MS SQL Binary Data String imported?

    Paul Houghton

      In my MS SQL db I have a binary data string as my key joining field. When it gets imported into Tableau the entries get truncated in a strange way (as far as I can tell).

       

      I want to know how does tableau import those fields and convert them to a string, and what truncation is taking place to get the final result.

      In addition, when I use them as a joining field in my connection, is the join done before or after the conversion/truncation?
