    Header Allignment

    Arpit Nema

      Hi All,


      I have to create a table like this in Tableau:

      Header 1Header 2
      Header 1Header 2Header 3Header 4Header 5Header 6


      I am using separate text boxes for main headers.

      The problem here is that my table occupies entire width on my sheet and has a scroll bar for some of the filter and no scroll bars for others. So the alignment of the main headers with respect to the sub-headers changes. How can I achieve something like this with dynamically adjusting alignment?

          Good morning


          follow the example below - select format - alignment and when the box opens go to header and select Left

            This works out only if the hierarchy is set in the data but unfortunately that is not the case. The headers in the data are basically KPI fields that club together to quantify a certain subject area. Please find below one such example:
