I hope someone can help with this. Yesterday while publishing to the server I began to get an error when the process reached 'completing request'. The error is below. I restarted the server, deleted the old project with the same name and still the same error. I can reach the server with my connecton and see all the maintenance and other views on the server including all the visualisations which by the way are few but I cannot publish. The SQL server instance that is running on the server where Tableau is located is functioning perfectly. The Tableau server is ver7.0 and the desktop is 7.0.5
Thanks for any help with this. David

Errors occurred while trying to load the workbook "DoctorStatsAllDPVCustomRuleGroups/extract". The load was not able to complete successfully'.
Sorry about the post. I realized that there was no extract with the workbook I was trying to send and the Tableau server must have been trying to hit its local server instead of the correct one. My apologises. david
