    Does Tableau run the queries within Access?

    Alan Kwan

      Hi all,


      My tableau workbook which is published on the server, connects to an extract and an access file which grabs from an ODBC database. The server scheduling update works fine.


      I want to update the access file say..hourly or daily. I have many queries within that access file. My question is, when Tableau is connected to the access file, does it run the queries within? Or I will have to open the access file, run all the queries manually, save it, then wait for the server to update the task?


      Is there a way so that my access file data automatically updates from the ODBC??
