Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description
119131

Using a calculated dimension whose value is determined by a parameter results in performance issues due to an unnecessary join and subsequent queries.

118207

Tableau Desktop was not using temporary tables with Amazon RedShift connections. Temporary tables improve performance in some cases.

117883

When using a secondary data source, a percentile aggregation in a calculated field caused an "Unexpected Error Incorrect data type" error.

117491

On zip-code filled maps, the 04090 zip code displayed in both Maine and Puerto Rico.

117404

When using an EXASolution data source, you could not sort by a dimension.

117054

Passwords for Amazon Redshift data sources that contain percent symbols are now correctly handled.

116586

Tableau Desktop didn't recognize some Japanese words for geographic locations. For example: アメリカ (United States of America), チャイナ (China), ジャパン (Japan), and 新加坡共和国 (Singapore).

116104

Specifying an odd number of Stepped Color steps on a color palette sometimes displayed an extra color.

115957

Switching to a worksheet after clicking the home icon in the upper right sometimes changed the connection icon to the live connection icon.

115706

Teradata connection performance is improved for connections that include fields marked as not Null.

115692

SAP BW calculations that mixed strings and numeric data showed as valid in Tableau Desktop, even though SAP BW does not support calculations returning strings, and the calculations generated errors. Tableau Desktop now marks these non-numeric calculations as invalid.

114643

Copying sheets from one workbook and pasting them to another workbook sometimes created duplicated shapes on the shape palette.

110113

When republishing a workbook that used an extract, you were not prompted for a password even when the original workbook had included an embedded password. Subsequent attempts to refresh the extract would fail due to an invalid (missing) password.

108933

Custom images sometimes appeared blurry or broken when scaled up to a larger size than the original.

104686

When a field was on the Pages shelf in a map view, mark labels sometimes appeared only on the first page.

100521

When copying and pasting a sheet to another workbook, Tableau Desktop did not always properly paste parameters into the target workbook. A parameter in the target workbook could be maintained and this could alter results of calculations that included the parameter.

97105

With cube data sources, you could not filter on calculated fields that used the SIGN function.

93470

Fonts available in the Edit Label dialog (available by clicking Label in the Marks shelf and then clicking the ellipses next to the Text box) did not always appear in the Font dropdown list in the label formatting window (available when you click Label in the marks shelf).
