It's difficult to say without seeing your data, but if the cell is Null, Tableau automatically exclude that name from the view.
And also if you have criteria to exclude specific number from the table, you can also do that.
Anyways, I want to see your packaged workbook(***.twbx) for more analysis and need to understand your request more in detail.
Hi Shini, thanks for the reply.
Let me emphasize my problem a bit more.
I need to exclude a few entries from a list. The entries which need to be excluded, are different every day, and there is no attribute to these devices weather to keep them in the list or not, it is decided each day and the excluded devices keep changing.
Thus the is no blank row as of now, so that tableau will exclude it automatically as well.
Currently I would have to manually change the filter according to the exclusion list everyday, but would like a better way to allow this to be done automatically, either by creating an exclusion list daily and having tableau compare the names to it before displaying or add a daily attribute to each device (highly not preferred)
I wont be able to share my data here, although I shall make a dummy sheet and upload it for reference ASAP.
How do you determine wich devices have to be excluded? Is there a logic between de devices excluded and de date?
The devices to be excluded are determined manually every day, depending upon a number of conditions. automating this isn't possible as there needs a human input to decide the list.
