    Can I use custom colors stored in SQL?

    James Clark

      Hi, Everyone. I just downloaded the Tableau 14-day trial, and had a dashboard with three sheets done in about 1/2 hour. No training, no videos - just jumped in. Holy cow. Slick.


      OK, my question is this: I'm using SSRS, and I have custom colors stored in SQL (#FCFFB6) to keep all of my dashboards looking similar.


      How do I assign colors to the bars in a chart which are stored in a field? They correspond to the dimension.


      Make sense? (See attached)


      UPDATE - I created a custom palette, assigned Divisions to colors and that worked fine, but still wondering if I can use custom colors "on the fly" from SQL?
