Hello, the question is a little vague. What do you mean how they appear? Do you mean text-wise, shading-wise, etc?
I found the manual sort option which appears to work.
Let's say I have a row header Region and instead of the order as Central, East, South West (alphabetical), and I want it to show East, Central, West, South instead.
Right click and click sort on that row or column header you want to reorganize and just drag and drop accordingly.
For future reference, if you wanted to pre-sort your fields for Tableau, what you can do in Excel is to number your fields too like this
- 1. b
- 2. d
- 3. a
- 4. c
EDIT: It seems that you figured it out!
