    Trying to find data labeled as "Free Response"

    Emily Williams

      Hello! I am working with survey data in tableau and I am trying to determine the number of patients impacted by certain educational programs. In the actual survey, while it asks for a numerical value from respondents, the numbers register as text. Therefore, I assume, when I am trying to view the data and sum it in tableau it is registering as "free response". This is fine, but I am wondering how I can dive deeper into the "free response" and see what the respondents actually put. Screenshots below to show what I am talking about.

       

       

      Then when I go to "show full data", it shows the same thing:

       

      And if this is possible to actually find the raw data, will there be any way to sum it in tableau since it is not registering as a number?

       

      Thank you in advance! (:
