Do you want to show as axis or as header?
There is one hidden feature of tableau which you can try, drag your date field and set it at year DATEPART, drill it down to get month year and make it continuous. You'll get below view
Now edit the axis and delete the title and put space that's it, space will gives year as title of the axis. See the screenshot
Give a try and let us know if this help.
I knew your next question would be this
You will not get month axis headers like discrete month fields. And if you try to formatting the month that will also not help.
You have to compromise with this, at some extent you can use manual sizing of the bar instead of fixed.
That's true Sir! I found it accidentally one and half years back
Should be recognized as "bug", not a feature though ?......
Anyways, thank you for sharing.
Agree! You're welcome
Thanks a lot
