Moving headers to the top of the view in Tableau

Updated: Nov 7, 2022

By default, when you create views in Tableau, headers are always at the bottom of the view. Sometimes you might be interested in displaying these headers at the top instead of having them at the bottom of the view.

How can you do that?

  • Drag product segment to the columns.

  • Drag Sales to the rows.

  • Choose bar under marks card.
