TABLEAU: Number of Records

TABLEAU: Number of Records

Answer

I’m trying to figure out how Tableau calculates and generates the Number of Records. Counting the rows manually does not equal the count tableau is giving. And if it is a sum of some values, which one exactly? I have tried to sum up many values but none is just corresponding. Kindly help out.

Oh, i found it. I had to go to excel to view the entire worksheet, then i found the values Tableau counted to make the total count – the entire values are not displayed in Tableau.
