    Tableau Prep Drag & Drop Reordering

    Austin Speaker

      I'm working on cleaning up a new data source following a series of joins in Tableau Prep from a SQL database. I love the drag and drop functionality to reorder my fields, but when I drop some of the fields I want to move, they insert themselves in a different position than where I drop them. I can keep trying over and over again, but the fields continue to place themselves seemingly at random rather than where I'm dropping them. The only way I've found to get around it is to move all of the other fields around the one that I actually want to move so that it ends up in the right place relative to the fields I'm not moving, but then several of those fields do the same thing, and I wind up with an even more useless field order.


      This should be such a simple operation. What am I missing?
