    Changing the underlying data source without destroying the entire workbook.

    Tim Uckun

      I have several workbooks based on the same datasource. The datasource is a view.

       

      I would like to redo this view to use a completely different table structure. The end result will be that there will be a few fields missing, some new fields and some fields renamed.

       

      ldeally I would like to keep the old view but create a new one and have my graphs use the new view. I am willing to make minor adjustments to the graphs to accomodate missing or renamed views.

       

      Last time I attempted something like this Tableau insisted that all the graphs in the workbook be wiped if I change the data source. Is there a way to tell it to use a different datasource and not wipe the graphs.
