When you say, you are connecting to tableau and applying a filter, do you mean it as the data source filters?
Can we have some more info on the steps followed to arrive at this issue?
Yes, I'm referring to data source filters on a live server connection. And since I originally asked the question I've narrowed the problem down a little more. These are my server filters:
The are not listed in the order that I created them. I created them in the following order:
1. Filtered for Site Name
2. Filtered for Alert Comment Type
3. Filtered for Initiated Timestamp, keeping the newest value.
The image above is the order that they present themselves after I close the filter window and reopen, and after I save and then reopen. They alphabetize themselves. However, I just noticed that when I create the third filter, 'Initiate TImestamp' this is the dialog:
And I select the 'Filter to latest date value when workbook is opened' checkbox. I need that same filter to be applied after the other two have been applied. In other words, I need to filter for the newest value after the first two filters have been applied. Any ideas?
