Tableau reports can easily be embedded into an asp.net page (or HTML, PHP, etc) as long as the report is published to Tableau Server - Tableau Server is our "sharing" mechanism. Once published, each and every view in the server can give you an embed tag you can drop into your web page to display it with. It's quite simple and easy to do...however, this is a feature of Server, not Desktop.
Hope this helps!
Thanks Russell for quick response.
I tried to do but I unable to get Tableau Server working with Desktop. I am trying to publish the worksheet to Tableau Server but I get an error message.
"A Connection with server could not be established". So please let me know how to connect with server So I can get with it to .Net Application.

Pradeep, for the sake of troubleshooting you can treat Tableau Server as any other webapp. The steps I might try when figuring out why I can't connect to a webapp might be:
- See if I can PING the box the Tabbleau Server is running on from my Desktop. I'd try using both the HOSTNAME and IP address
- Make sure that Tableau Server is actually running on that box
- See if I can surf to http://NameOfTheServer from my machine
- Make sure I typed the right machine name or IP address
If I get negative results in step 1-3 then you likely have a problem with physical connectivity to the machine and/or Server and your admin needs to investigate.
If you can successfully connect to Tableau Server outside of Desktop and you've double-checked the server name / username / password you're entering when you login, then you'd probably want to open up a ticket with Tech Support.
You're not using a newer version of Tableau Desktop (7, for example) to publish to an older version of Server (6.1), are you?
