    Excel data source file passed to Tableau Server when publishing workbook with Excel data Source?

    John Sobczak

      Can someone confirm that the actual Excel file is sent to Tableau Server when publishing a Tableau Workbook with a Excel data source?  I'm 90% sure it is as when I download the workbook from the Server it also downloads or creates an Excel file in my local temporary directory.  Just would like some affirmation on this as well as any other interesting insight or reasons for this.  Maybe it is because Tableau Server would not have any defined connections back to local machines for Excel live file scenarios similarly like for databases?
