    Data Connection

      I am using Tableau Desktop.  I have a file that is updated monthly - located in Access on our server.

       

      When making a data connection to this Access DB - I am assuming that it is better to import than to connect live - due to performance issues???  When connecting live, Tableau seems to be very slow generating the visuals.

       

      Am I correct?  Can anyone give me some insight?

       

      If I were to do an import - do I just do a refresh next time to bring in the latest data?

       

      Thanks
