    Access to SQL Database

    Abby Palcer

      What could be causing the below error when someone is tries to connect to Microsoft SQL Server?   They have dbreader access to the database.  I tried to update the access to db_owner and still get the below error message.



      An error
      occurred while communicating with Microsoft SQL Server.


      authentication failed. The error may need to be resolved through local
      configuration changes on the Tableau side. The error may need to be resolved
      through remote configuration changes on the data source.

      Driver 13 for SQL Server][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'domain\username'.

      This may
      indicate that the database name is incorrect.

      authentication failed.
