Table view showing 25% of results

I’m running 0.35.4 and have a custom SQL query that does some calculation to populate a temporary table in MSSQL then does a select * from [table]. This has 22 rows currently. Metabase shows only 6 no matter what I do. Any ideas?

Hi @brennan
I don’t understand - are you just running select * from [table] from Metabase or a multi-statement query that creates a temporary table?
Check log on your SQL Server to see what query it’s running and what results are being sent back.

I’m running a series of sql commands that creates / populates / select * from [temp_table] in my metabase question. The download result to csv is correct from the question page and includes all 22 results. The table visualization itself only has the first 6 records. (1/4 * 22 = 5.5, rounds up to 6 rows).

@brennan I’ve never heard of this before. Check the response from the request (/api/dataset if unsaved, /api/card/:id/query if saved) in your browser developer Network-tab.
Or perhaps you’re returning two dimensions and one metric, so the table is auto-converted to a Pivot? Change that in visualization Settings.

Very odd, in the developer tools for /api/car/:id/query this is shown:

  1. json_query: {constraints: {max-results: 10000, max-results-bare-rows: 2000}, type: “native”, middleware: null,…}

  2. async?: true

  3. cache-ttl: null

  4. constraints: {max-results: 10000, max-results-bare-rows: 2000}

  5. database: 2

  6. middleware: null

  7. native: {,…}

  8. type: “native”

  9. row_count: 6

  10. running_time: 246

@brennan In the response, check the data.native_form.query and compare it to when you download as CSV

The data.native_form query seems to be identical (when executed in SQL Server Management Studio) to the csv result upon download.

@brennan I have never seen something like this before, but the server is returning 6 rows, so check the log on the server to figure out what is different between the two queries.
And make sure you’re not hitting cache (Admin > Settings > Caching)
