I have published workbooks with live connections in the past with no problem. However, these workbooks have always accessed a shared folder. The difference now is that permissions have been granted to the desired folder, for that specific user only (it is not a shared folder).
Anyway, this is the error I'm getting:
Invalid database name value
The table "[TableauTemp].[example_table#txt]" does not exist.
Unable to connect to the server "". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.
A few things to note:
* I am definitely accessing the correct UNC path.
* I can publish the exact same workbook successfully if I move the underlying text file to a shared folder.
* The network department assures me that permissions have been granted to the Tableau Server user (and this has been tested).
Any ideas? Does this error indicate a permissions problem, or some other technical issue? Thanks in advance.
It turns out that this was indeed a permissions problem.
