I've never experienced this before and could not find any discussions on this. It's one of those problems that has be rubbing my eyes making sure I'm seeing straight. When I load a 6-row, 2-column table Qlik Sense desktop seems to lose and/or remap information. It looks like it remaps 'Meeting' and 'Support' to the wrong id.
Good thought perhaps this will tell us a little about how Qlik is reading it... This was using text(). I also tried num() and it showed the same thing. I exported to excel and it was just this string as well.
