    Tableau Server: Loss of leading zeroes on export

    Niall Mossop

      Hi all I've run into a problem with leading zeroes being lost when downloading data from Tableau Server.

       

      Data field is a string in Tableau and so preserves the full string when using the server just when 'Download all rows as text file' is pressed they are lost.

       

      Download Data screen with full string;

       

      Result when downloaded;

       

      My work needs accurate data sets that can be archived and shared in excel using the data from tableau server.

       

      Has anyone run into this problem and do you have a solution?
