Remarks

When exporting to Tableau Server / Online, use the "About" field to store data source metadata such as the author. Note that appending data to an existing data source doesn't change its "About" property.

Boolean values are converted to numbers - 0 for FALSE and 1 for TRUE.

Errors and empty cells are replaced with nulls.

Numbers in EasyMorph are converted into floating-point values in Tableau which may potentially lead to a loss of precision as numbers in EasyMorph allow more digits after the decimal point.
