    Tableau does not ask for DB password when refreshing extracts

      Hi there,

       

      now that I've got my MySQL connections to work again the next issue appears: when refreshing extracts, tableau does not ask for a password,instead,it opts to play stupid and says

       

      MySQL database error 0x80004005: [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Access denied for user 'xxxxxxx_3'@'local3' (using password: NO)

       

      I tried to edit the connection, put in the password,connected and refreshed the extracts, but after restarting tableau (after saving the workbook) it still forgets to ask for the passwort.

       

      Whats the matter?

       

      Thanks,

      P
