Thank you for the reply ! Let me give your more insight what I kind of feed I get every week.
Every week, I receive multiple tables from the dev team which I connect with multiple joins and generate a report which compares current week v/s last week of data. To connect both week data, I use data blending.
What I would like to do -
Every week, when I receive the data, I would like to place the tables in certain location and tableau picks the specific table automatically. After that, it joins the tables(every time it will be same table), compare the data with last week and generate the report.
Is it possible to do this ? This task is assigned to me, every week till end of April and I would like to automate it as much as posssible. Please help !
In what format do you receive tables from DEV team ? Is it Excel Sheets or do they update actual DB tables?
Dev team drops the tables in text format in a zipped folder
What format ? If your dashboard has to access those files, what data source format will you select ?
I am not sure, if I am understanding your question correctly
I would say .txt file. I use "Text file " open when I select data source to connect file to Tableau. Hope it answers !
