    Creating Join with TDE and Excel Shows Type Mismatch

    Jon Townsend

      This may have already been asked, but I couldn't find an answer that worked for my scenario.


      The scenario is that I have a Tableau Data Extract that has a field called "Customer Number" and I have an excel sheet which has the same field and I am trying to create a Left join between the two however the issue I am getting is "Type Mismatch between join fields [Extract].[Cust No](String) and [sheet1].[Cust No](Number(whole)).


      I have tried changing the data type of the field in the extract to be a number, did not work. I have also tried changing the data type in the excel sheet to text.


      Has anyone had this issue, and can you help me resolve it?


      Thank you.
