Issue with Tableau Extracts

Hello,

I am having an issue with decimals using Tableau extracts. In my model, I have the following data:

8.99
10.01
7.5
6.1

In the tableau extract, the data that I am getting is

8
10
7
6

I thought at first that tableau was rounding the data, but it appears that when the extracts are generated it is dropping the decimals. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi Cody,

I have been unable to reproduce this on my machine. It seems to export correctly for me. Could you ensure that you have the correct data type set up when performing the export – Might you have selected "integer"? The data type you’re going to want is "[b:1ektuwoj]Double[/b:1ektuwoj]"

Let me know how you get on.
