125069

With Tableau Desktop 32-bit, connections to large Excel files would cause Tableau to close. Now when you attempt to connect to an Excel spreadsheet that is too large to load, a message displays telling you this.

124746

When making a live connection to Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) using the native SQL Server connection, dragging an aggregated measure to a view caused an error like: "[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]Parse error at line: 3, column: 10: Incorrect syntax near '('."

When working in the Tableau Server authoring environment on Internet Explorer 8, calendar date parameter selections were not retained.

With PDF output from Tableau for the Mac, text was sized differently than on Windows or Tableau Server and so appeared to be justified differently. This was especially evident in headers and axes.

123231

When printing views to a custom paper size, Tableau Desktop closed unexpectedly, logging an unhandled exception with an “updateCustomPaperSize” error message.

122242

When connecting to a Vertica data source that used double-precision floating-point number as the data type, Tableau displayed “#error” instead of the value.

122128

The Japanese “totals” heading in the Format window was incorrectly translated. The correct translation of the “totals” heading is 合計.

121554

When adding a field to a group, the drop-down menu in which you select the group showed fewer items than in previous versions. If you had more than 10 groups, this increased the need to scroll to select the correct group.

120912

When sharing Tableau workbooks in Microsoft Lync, interacting with the views sometimes did not work as expected.

120660

With Microsoft SQL Server connections, Tableau Desktop displayed a "The SELECT permission was denied" error and failed to connect when SQL Server denied permission for the stored procedures.

120578

When working with an extracted data source, if the structure of the file to append is different than that of the original file, selecting Append Data from File causes an “extract not found” error. If you are working with an extract of a single-table Excel file, and Excel file to append has only one sheet, using Append Data from File completes successfully.

In either case, when the file structure has changed, the correct action is to use the Append from Data Source command. For more information, see Adding Data to Extracts in the Tableau Desktop Help. http://onlinehelp.tableausoftware.com/current/pro/online/windows/en-us/…
