2019.4 Upgrade: Publish to Tableau Issues with Fixed Decimals and Fixed calculations

Highlighted
7 - Meteor

We upgraded to 2019.4 and we ran into an issue were Tableau treats the FixedDecimal as strings and we needed to change them to the type of Double in order for them to be recognized as numbers. 

 

The only change was the upgrade to version 2019.4 of Alteryx, if we run the workflow in the older version everything works as expected.

Known Issue DE22669 does not appear in the release notes for 2020.1. Would you like to revise your comments, counselor? 😉 

Or perhaps have someone correct the release notes? Or correct my misperception about this?

 

Thanks!!

@danclegg we've requested a change to the release notes, but no ETA on when that will be updated. I can confirm it's fixed, but if you see otherwise please don't hesitate to reach out!
