    How to export to CSV in specific column order?

    melody.alberti

      Hi, I'm a newbie to both Tableau and this forum.   Please forgive me if I use incorrect terminology. I have extensive expertise using SQL so as a test, I took a relatively small SQL statement of mine and added it as "Custom SQL" to a Tableau workbook and confirmed the data being returned was correct. I created a sheet with the columns (all 6 are dimensions) in a specific order, then selected "Export data to CSV". For some reason, the columns are in alphabetical order in the CSV file. I googled this and found some folks are having the same issue, but with my limited Tableau knowledge, I don't know how to resolve this. If anyone can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks and regards, Mel A.
