I searched the forum and it seems the questions regarding country names are pretty old, so I'm hoping there is a solution for Tableau 10.
I have data with only ISO country 2 char codes. I set the the Edit Location to ISO, and Tableau is displaying the countries correctly.
It's clear that Tableau knows the full name of the country. That can be seen in the Edit location table.
Now, how can I display these values in the ToolTip?
I don't want to download more data and blend, or maintain a country name table in my database. Tableau has the data; it's right there. How can I access it?
Looks like this ability is not currently built into the product. I did find a couple of ideas on the topic to upvote.
For now, it looks like blending or adding the names to the data source are the workaround options.
