I have a .twb file connected to a .SAV (statistical) file with Live selected. There are no queries involved and I do not have Tableau Server.
When I update the .SAV file, it won't allow me to use the new field, even though it shows up in the list of available fields on the worksheet. I get the following message (ACES2 is the field name - a 3-character string with only 2 values). Is there a way to fix this? I would rather not have to change the data source since I have a lot of formatting, custom groups, etc. and I don't want to have to start from scratch.
What Tableau version are you using? (9.x.x?)
Have you tried refreshing the datasource?
I'd hit up our support - they'd need to take a look at your logs to figure out what exactly is going on.
