    Refreshing only one or two extracts on Tableau server

    Luke Bryant

      I have a workbook published on Tableau server that has two extracts.  One based on an excel sheet that does not need to be refreshed, and one that is linked to an oracle database that needs to be refreshed daily.  


      When publishing I embed the password for the oracle extract and the only option for the excel is "Server Run As account". What I have found is that the refresh fails daily because it is trying to refresh the excel based extract. 


      Is there a way to tell Tableau server only to refresh one of the two extracts?
