    My extract takes a lot of time

      Hello,

       

      I am relatively new to Tableau. I have an extract created using a custom sql query. It takes a lot of time to open after getting closed. Any ideas as to how can i improve the speed here?

       

      Thanks,

      Sonia

          Hi Sonia, there could be many factors contributing to this.  Your best bet is to contact Support.  They should be able to recommend some best practices and take a look at your logs or workbook if you provide it to them.  A few things to think about are how many rows are in the extract, are you viewing a complicated worksheet or dashboard when starting up, are you using a lot of filters?  With some trial and error you might be able to simplify your workbook and determine exactly where the slowness is coming from.
