    Live connection to an Access Database table

    Stevan Huber

      I pulling data from a single table in an MS Access Database into Tableau.  The connection is supposedly LIVE.  It does not seem to behave as LIVE becuase when I make updates in the Access database, those changes are not reflected in the data in Tableau.  Any idea on what I am doing wrong?  What is the difference between an Extract and a LIVE connection?  I understood that an Extract would be a static picture of the data and a LIVE connection would constantly be updating as the data updates so my graphs deplicting the data would change as the data changes.  I appreciate any assistance you can give me on this one.
