    Null Values when importing Data from CSV-Files

    Eike Hennig

      Hey everybody,

       

      I'm new to working with tableau. I have to import various CSV-Files (with around 40 columns and diferent datatypes). I already created a shema.ini file to declare each colum with a data type. My problem is, that from time to time i get "Null-Values" when importing if the value is a decimal number (even though the datatype is selectes as decimal or double). Is there a way to avoid these problems?

       

      I'm thankfull for every helpfull answere. Sadfully I cant attach a workbook, because the data is confidential...

       

      Thanks
