Views appear or disappear because they have data(appear) or don't have data (all nulls - disappears)
so one way is use filters in the view that filters out all the data when one condition is met but lets some data through when other conditions are met
placing more than one view in a single container is a way to sheet swap (often the user is not aware they are looking at an entirely different worksheet)
Don't know what you are doing based on you description - posting a twbx workbook would produce more specific responses
If this posts assists in resolving the question, please mark it helpful or as the 'correct answer' if it resolves the question. This will help other users find the same answer/resolution. Thank you.
Thanks, Jim, but there's no reason why I'd put a filter on the data. There are no conditions to meet. The spreadsheet has only two columns--the name of the category, and the measure values. There are four categories, and only four rows with data (the percentages relative to each category of aid).
then why is the sheet disappearing?
That is my question.
If you can't post your book I can't be of any help
From the screen shots it shows that your sheet actually IS appearing online. The title is there. So the sheet itself is not disappearing. When the title shows, but no data shows, something is causing the sheet to be empty. That's what Jim was saying. It might not ne a filter issue. It might be a data access issue when the dashboard is online. It's really hard to say from just screen shots.
I agree with Jim. Can you post a sample workbook?
The whole thing comes up blank for me. Not even the background image.
Do you know how to create a packaged workbook? From desktop do FILE->"Export Packaged Workbook". This will make a TWBX file. Upload that here.
Thanks again for trying to help, Joe. I don't have this option: "FILE->"Export Packaged Workbook"
I'm on TableauPublic on Mac OS X. I saved the file as a workbook to the server, and thought that would allow people to download it. I don't know a way around the problem, otherwise.
I also can't reply to these messages directly from the forum (I'm replying by email). The forum has clickable areas for "LOG IN" and "SIGN IN" but if I click either of them, the forum says I'm already signed in, and then takes me out of the forum to a Tableau product offering.

Hmmm.... I'm not well versed in Tableau Online, so I don't know what to suggest here.
I was hoping to download your workbook from Online, but since I can't get to it, I can't do that.
Without a workbook one way or another, I can't do much with this question.
You have your dashboard set to a specific size.
Of that 560 height, you have the image sized to eat up most of the space:
This is why the data sheet is getting truncated the way you see it. (Same behavior when you publish it to server.
You want your dashboard size to be large enough to accommodate the sums of all the heights and widths of all the objects on your dashboard. (Or you want the objects on the dashboard to be sized to fit within your dashboard boundaries.)
Joe, that's awesome. Thank you.
Yes, I can see what a foolish thing that was too do, and why it would kick my data out of sight. Thank you. I don't believe I'll ever make that mistake again.
