    Excel data source on sharepoint server caching

      I have an excel file I am using as a data source.  This file exists on a sharepoint server on intranet.  When I edit this file, the data is not refreshing in Tableau despite hitting Data->refresh.  It appears that Tableau is using a cached file local to my system.  When I edit the data connection, I enter the hyperlink to the file in the Step 1: Select an Excel workbook box, then click browse.  It takes me to a window to search my files, etc...  I enter the hyperlink again and click open.  When I return to the Data Connection window Tableau has replaced my hyperlink with a cached file on my C drive...  I can't get it to always reference the file on the intranet.  It keeps replacing with a local temporary cached file.  HELP????
