    Data Source Order OR Sorting within Filter ????

    Sumeet Bedekar

      Hi Tableau Lover,

       

      I know, data source order won't give me the order of spreadsheet.

       

      See image : - Product order in excel and tableau are different.

       

      However, I want to know if there is any workaround to get same sort in Tableau as well.

       

      My Approach :-

       

      1) Adding Extra column in excel such as - A1, A2, A3, A4 ...OR just numeric 1,2,3 and so on

       

       

      2) Then placing this new field in Tableau

       

       

       

       

       

      Above option will give me the sorting I want....

       

      However, I want to see same sorting in Filter as well. Is there any workaround/ Jugaad to get above sorting in Filter as well.

       

      Looking forward.

       

       

      Regards,

      Sumeet
