This means that you've created a data extract from the original Excel sheet.
Note: You can remove the extract at any time by selecting Data > [your data source] > Extract > Remove. If you move or rename the extract file and then open a workbook connected to that extract file, you must modify the file path to point to the new location. Tableau prompts you to browse to the new file location when you open the workbook.
Hope this helps!
Ok, I removed the extract, and then fixed the Connection to point to the correct subdirectory.
Then, I did a Data, < Data Source >, Extract Data.... and saved the TDE file. After a while, processing was done, but i still don't see any data. I must be missing a step...
Figured out what was wrong... there was a bad column name! fixed it, and everything is okay now.
