I haven't seen anything specifically about parameters and published data sources, so here goes:
After publishing a data source that serves as a 'denominator' to multiple, packaged workbooks, I got a nasty surprise:
somehow, when bringing the publised data source back in as a connection, the parameters got all confused
and, essentially tanked a zillion calculated fields. Parameters got lost, re-named - and, even named identically.
(I.e. I had 2 parameters identically named)
And, the nastiest surprise of all:
these collisions didn't show up until I closed and then re-opened the workbook.
Given that it's taking me days to recover*, I thought I'd post this & see if anybody has some
advice on what I might have done wrong
*I'm not sure I'm actually fully recovered yet - until I close / re-open / update a bunch of workbooks a bunch of times)
