Example:

Data in tableau dashboard shows 2304000000453795

when exported it will be displayed as 2304000000453790

 

Apparently this is a know issue since 2018 as mentioned in the below tableau forum

https://community.tableau.com/thread/283094

 

Let me know if any one has the workaround for the issue

Hi

 

When you are importing, select the column data format as "text format", and it would imort fine for the data.

Hope this helps

 

Share a sample file, so that, can help better with some automation.

 

Thank you.
