    Best practice on data extract

    Mike webb

      I'm a newbie so appreciate some help/input on best practice when it comes to data extracts and updating them.


      I have an extract (300mb) and workbooks connected to this.  I want to update the extract daily with the previous day's data and then the workbooks.  Currently if I refresh the extract it updates all of the data which is quite large (and growing)  takes 25 mins+, so I wonder if I can update just yesterday's parameter (assuming the previous days data are already extracted)?


      I don't have the Tableau server so i can't do scheduled extracts as of now.  Perhaps this is the only way to speed up the process???


      Appreciate help/advise.  Thanks
