    Joining tables not working

    Mark Manning

      Hello All,

       

      I'm trying to join two tables that are in a single Microsoft Access database.  I have created an extract of my first table and connected tableau to it.  I then go to Data > select my extract > Edit Tables > Add Table > select the new table I want to join to the first table > create the join clause > select left join > hit Okay > hit Okay again.  I check the Preview Data and it looks good, because the columns include all columns from both the original table and the table I want to join.  But, when I hit the final Okay, nothing happens.

       

      Any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?

       

      Thank you.
