    How do you view the final SQL that Tableau sends to the database?

    Tim Hill

      I thought I remembered a way to find the final SQL that Tableau will send to the database (Oracle in this case) but I can't seem to locate it in my Tableau 7 desktop.  I know how to edit the connection and see my custom SQL but I want to see what Tableau is ultimately passing to the database in order to display the chart.  I know that when I choose some calculations it adds to the custom SQL that I created for the connection and then pulls the data.  How do I view that SQL so that I can see the exact query to display what is in the chart?  I don't think it matters but I'm asking this because the RUNNING_SUM for my chart does not match a query of the sum of all data in my database, although it is very close.
