This error occurs in the Microsoft JET layer and is not typically a setting that Tableau can control. We have seen this error occur when more than 255 columns are returned in a query as well as when a text field exceeds 255 characters or contains invalid characters for the data type - which may be the case here. If there are less than 255 columns in the data, this would be a good one for our support team to look at, you can submit a request here:
Hope this helps!
