    Oracle driver for Tableau server 7.0

    Venkat Ram

      Hi,

      I need Oracle ODBC driver for Tableau server 7.0.

       

      in this link, i dont see the that, http://www.tableausoftware.com/support/drivers

       

      it says that "The Oracle driver is installed with Tableau Server in versions 5.0 and later."

       

      Our tableau server was set up by some one else.  When i log in to my tableau server i dont see the oracle odbc driver in the admin tools/odbc tool.

       

      please let me know where i can find Oracle ODBC driver for Tableau server 7.0.

       

      thanks

      Venkat

          Tableau uses native connections for what you see in the "drivers" site.  This means you will NOT see ODBC stuff.  This is good as the Tableau native drivers are typically better at getting the data than ODBC.  Have you tried to connect to an Oracle db?  Remember, you'll need to have your TNSNAMES.ORA file set up (that would be necessary for ODBC, too).

           

          By the way, click on the version number to download the driver
