    Saving Data Connections

    Joe Pelonio

      I am working with live connections to 4-5 tables in a live SQL database, and would like to save the connection rather than have to do all the joins every time.

       

      The Tableau help screen says:

       

      After connecting to data, optionally save the connection to your repository. Saving the connection creates a shortcut to the data source and lets you avoid having to create a new connection every time you want to use that source. Exporting the data source is useful you have added custom fields such as groups and sets to the Data window.

       

      Unfortunately it does not say how to do this.  Can anyone tell me how?
