In this article we are briefly going to cover how to add more columns to Tableau. As you are probably finding out that once you add more than 6.

Tableau starts concatenating the columns after, which might not be what you are trying to show on your dashboard. If your view looks similar to the image below, where Country & Category are showing as one column. Then follow the steps listed below to fix this issue


In order to show more columns, All you would need to do is go to

Analysis > Table Layout > Advanced 

Afterwards change the Value of default 6 from Rows (Maximum level of row labels & Maximum levels of horizontal row labels ) as shown below to 16, which is the max amount of columns Tableau allows, as of now.

There is a trick where we can show more than 16 which we will cover in a video. 

Once you entire the desired amount of columns you need (max 16) click Apply. Your data would look more like below now

Thats it!!!
