    How to publish changing Excel sheets to Tableau Server

    Sten Lomme

      How can I publish an Excel-data source to Tableau Server and update the reports simply by replacing the source Excel-file?

       

      The Tableau worbook is created on a local machine and published to the Tableau Server. The datasource Excel-file is located at D:\Data\Document.xls on the local machine. When published I want Tableau Server to use the file C:\Data\Document.xls

       

      How can I do this? If I include the Excel-file when I publish to Tableau Server this becomes a static Excel-file that I can not replace. When I do not include the fil I get the "file not found" error on the server.

       

      Any ideas?
