    Filter data from SQL code or from the built-in extract filter option

      Hi all,

       

      I am using an extract from a SQL Azure data source. I am calling a simple view containing data from multiple countries.

      I need to create one packaged workbook for each country (using User Filter is not an option).

       

      Is there any difference between the 2 approaches below:

       

      1. Filter directly from my SQL statement such as: SELECT * FROM [NameOfMyView] Where Country = [NameofCountry]

       

      2. Filter using the built in GUI in Tableau as below:
