    Tableau Extension: How to differentiate whether a dim/fact is on row or column field?

    Rohan Singh

      I am trying to differentiate whether a particular dim/fact is placed on row or column field on a Tableau worksheet.

      Basically I am trying to create an extension that can download the worksheet data as it. The current extension provided in the Tableau Extension gallery can't handle the 'Measure Values' and 'Measure Names' case the way I am expecting. The problem I am facing is when I see the data format using the extension API for the below 2 attached images it's exactly the same.

      Is there any way to get to know that the 'Ship Mode' dimension is on columns and not on rows using extension API?
