When you download into PDF by sheet, it will download the entire content paginated. There will be no scroll bars.
I tried your solution. Maybe I don't do that correctly, but when I Print my dashboard into a PDF, I see exactly what I have on my dashboard, namely the half of my table only and scroll bars..
Do you understand why? And what can I do?
Euuh no.. I haven't seen this option..
Sorry I'm a beginner in tableau ^^
My problem still not solved, so I thought maybe duplicate my table in several worksheets and show one after another from 1-20 lines, 21-40, 41-60 etc.
Is it possible to do that? And how? Or If there are some other ideas, I am all ears.
I am a beginner user of Tableau. I have the latest version and I am also experiencing this problem. I did notice that since I am using Tableau on a mac, I don't have the option of multiple sheets or print to PDF under file. My co-worker who works with tableau on a windows computer does. I was able to print the active sheet (dashboard sheet) and have my long table print in multiple pages but my notes and image that I added to the dashboard doesn't show up. How can I get it to show up? If I choose selected sheets, since my table is long, it doesn't create multiple sheets for the table. Does anyone have any suggestions?
You can select Analysis > Table Layout > Advanced and increase the number of rows and columns that are displayed, up to a max of 16.
Thank you for the response but I have set the table for 16 but 16 isn't enough and when I try to print as PDF, it doesn't create a multiple page PDF. Only a one page sheet that cut off the rest of the table.
You can set a SIZE using SIZE(). Say you have 800 Rows of Data so if you Split it into 50 Rows using the Formula . This is for First Sheet
SIZE()>=0 and SIZE<=50
Drag it to Filter and Set True
For Second Sheet
Size()>=51 and SIZE<=100 and so on...
Although this is a Tableau forum, I think its appropriate to consider keeping the data in excel or whatever spreadsheet you already have it in if you aren't prepared to change your visualisation format. Tableau is excellent at what it does, but there are better products for displaying hundreds of rows/columns at a time.
Food for thought..
