    Error during Data Blending

    San M

      Hello All,

       

      Can somebody help me with the question i have below regarding data blending?

       

      The issue i am facing right now is, the counts in my table changes (not accurate) the moment i click on the Active Icon Link that blends a field from 2 data sources. I am not sure what can be the reason. Is there any way, you can provide with any solution or tip?

       

      Thanks

          If I understand your question when you link the tables together (using the active link) then total number of marks in the viz changes - - that is the expected action -

          No the second part is that the change does not meet you expectation - Can't be specific without looking at the data but the number of marks will be dependent on the Filtered view in the viz after you connect or disconnect the link - the filters will still apply

            Thanks Jim for your quick response. Your understanding is correct. The count in the viz is changing and the final count i am getting is not accurate. I am not doing any filter that will make the count change. The moment i click on the active icon, the number changes.

             

            For example:

             

            I have a "VP Name" as common in Data Source A and Data Source B which means automatically tableau creates a relation because of the common name in 2 data sets. When i blend those 2 fields, then ideally the number should still remain the same (which is not happening) unless i apply the filter of seeing the data only for a particular VP.

             

            Any help will be appreciated.

             

            Thanks
