    Need to connect to a VIEW in a database vs. a specific table...possible/how?

    Jim McConnell

      When I search for "database view" in the forums / KB, most of things are about views in Tableau vs. Connecting to a view.  A DBA in my world has a great dataset but says the best/only way he can provide access is via a (Microsoft SQL Server) VIEW, vs. exporting to a seperate table.  Is this possible given the server name and view name and ______? And if so, any examples or posts on how to setup the connection?  Running Tableau 7.0.x

       

      Thanks,
