I am just starting out with Tableau (just testing out really to see if it's what I need) and I am having trouble which I can only assume is one of the most basic functions.
I want to show a count of rows
as an example I have
I have inner joined the tables
And I want to spit out a simple report that gives a count of the events that each user is associated with i.e.
But for the life of me I can't get it to work... I can drop in "Name" and display them.. I can drop in EventID to show all the individual events each user is associated with... but I can't do a simple Count(EventID) (the report always blanks out)
Am I missing something blindly obvious here?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Welcome to Tableau
If you did a join then you probably ended up with some NULL's in the data - you need to zero them out with a ZN function
try something like Count(ZN(eventid))
Let me know if this helped
