    Seeing the custom SQL code when you can't connect to the DB

    Alexis E

      Hi al,

       

      So I am outside of the office where I have access to the database Tableau connects to, but I still need to access the custom SQL that I've built for a data connection. Is there a way to do that?

      - When I edit the connection, the custom SQL pane is greyed-out until I connect to the DB

      - When I right-click->properties on a data connection, I can see the beginning of my custom SQL but seem to be unable to copy the full thing.

       

      It's more than 1000 lines of SQL, so I really need to copy/paste it.

       

      Any clues?

       

      THanks!
