I have had issues with this as Johan pointed out. The workaround I found was this:
- Open workbook.
- Connect to new datasource.
- Copy from old datasouce to new datasource problem fields.
- Replace datasource
Let me know how it goes.
Hi Johan and Nathan,
Thank you for the information!
For sure it is not the way you would expect Tableau to work...
Adding on Leticia issue, I am also facing a nasty bug with Reader on workbooks using an extract of a of server data source.
Opening them in Reader leads to a blank workbook.
1. Build a dashboard with data from a DB.
2. Extract the datasource and publish the datasource to Server.
3. Replace the datasource with the ones published on Tableau Server.
4. Extract the data again (to save to twbx).
5. Save as TWBX and open with Tableau Reader.
After opening (in Reader) I am getting a warning and a message saying that a grouped data is missing and will be deleted like below:
After validating all warning messages, the workbook opens but all content is empty.
The awkward thing is, that grouping was never created in the first place. And this only happens when using Tableau Server data.
I have already contacted Support on this (said to be fixed in a future release) but if someone found a workaround in the community, I'd love to hear from it. This bug is basically stopping our Tableau usage in our organization as our users typically have to download their workbooks from Server and open them in Reader for analysis... I am getting very desperate with this
