    Data Connection process


      Hi There,


      During the data connection process in one of my team, an issue has occured that:


      1) once you have given your data base credentials

      2) Specified about the meta data ( say you chose custom SQL)

      3) Then you specify the name of the data connection


      After this a window pops-up asking whether you want to connect live or import data.


      Now issue is that this fellow was getting that window earlier for 2-3 times, but now the tableau desktop does asks anythig it just connects and opens the layout window. There you have to precisely go and on right clicking on data source and you explicitly specify to make an extract here.


      So want to know how to get that automated window setup back again where it used to ask automatically to connect live, import from database all or partially.


      Pls help
