    Tableau reads CSV column as numeric when text present

    Mark Palmberg

      I assume this is some sort of encoding issue, but Tableau has always pretty reliably identified fields as text if they contain text characters. Not so in the attached. Any values with an H in the first position are interpreted as null, rather than reading the column in as text. Is it me? Is it Tableau? It's me, isn't it...?

       

      Would appreciate any thoughts on the matter. Thanks!
