Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

In some cases, opening a workbook would result in an error "Internal Error - An unexpected error occurred and the operation could not be completed" and in a LogicAssert error "Clip value out of range" in the DatePartValues.cpp file.


When a data source filter is applied, the extract history is not updated after an incremental refresh.


Some Japanese prefectures (三重 Mie, 京都 Kyoto, 和歌山 Wakayama, 埼玉 Saitama, 大分 Oita, 奈良 Nara, 富山 Toyama, 山口 Yamaguchi, 山梨 Yamanashi, 岐阜 Gifu, 岩手 Iwate, 新潟 Niigata, 熊本 Kumamoto, 神奈川 Kanagawa, 福井 Fukui, 秋田 Akita, 茨城 Ibaraki, 青森 Aomori, 香川 Kagawa, 高知 Kochi, 佐賀 Saga) were not recognized as geographic roles without the the suffix appended ( like "県” or "府”)


Maps using custom polygons were blank, distorted, or rendered as a single color box.


When you used a filter on a data source with a non-January fiscal year start, sometimes an "Unable to complete action Internal Error - An unexpected error occurred and the operation could not be completed" error occurred.


Selecting Total Using > Server with an ASO cube resulted in a “value 'Server' not in enumeration” error.


Creating an extract in a remote shared folder using Tableau Desktop 2018.2 on a Mac failed with an "fcntl(): Operation not supported" error.


When using a cluster in a workbook, extract refreshes sometimes failed with the error "Unable to complete action Internal Error - An unexpected error occurred and the operation could not be completed."


int64 field in OData sometimes rounded incorrectly.


When using Tableau Desktop with Microsoft Office IME 2010 Japanese, re-entering Japanese words do not convert them properly in the field name search. It looks like incremental auto-search is interrupting the IME character conversion and resulting in unintended characters appearing in search string.


When you connected to an Odata feed from a non-default namespace, an "Odata: Cannot find corresponding ComplexType" error occurred.


When doing a wildcard search on a pivoted field based on a .csv data source, a "collation mismatch" error sometimes occurred.


When you added description text to a story point, and then deselected the text object, you could not format the description again.


Using a calculated field containing a spatial geometry field and an failed conditional statement could result in an error: "unable to deduce expression type, use 'NULL::' to specify the type"


Updated province data for the Democratic Republic of the Congo.


Updated Turkish postcode data.


Many Thai vowel characters were not rendered correctly in Tableau Desktop.


After you refreshed an extract, saving the workbook would silently fail to retain the extract location if the extract was also open in another instance of Tableau Desktop, resulting in an "Extract not found" error upon reopening the workbook. There is now a warning for the failure and you are prompted to specify an alternate location to save the new extract data.


Updated Australian postcode data.


Updated German postcode data.


Updated German county data.


Sometimes, nested level of detail calculations in a workbook produced an "Error occurred communicating with the data source. No such column [Calculation_]." error message.


When trying to create an extract of Sybase ASE using a MAX() or Top N extract filter, the extract would fail.


When using the NOW() function with a live connection to Snowflake, Tableau followed the data source location time instead of the time configured on the data source server.
