    Tableau Public not loading Excel File or .txt file

    William Cazalet

      I'm a new user of Tableau Public. I am using it in Parallels (Version 14.1.3 (45485)) with Windows 10 (Version 1803, OS Build 17134.706).


      I downloaded the latest version of Tableau Public and created a profile.


      I tried to open/import an Excel file from my own library and also tried to use one of the Tableau files but with no success. I uninstalled and reinstalled Tableau but I still get the same message: -


      An error occurred while communicating with Tableau Data Extract.



      Bad Connection: Tableau could not connect to the data source.

      Error Code: 3834846E

      There was problem and the data engine could not start properly.


      While I see some threads related to this general problem, I don't see anything related to this specifically.


      Any ideas?
