    How to Replace Data Source while retaining parameters and calculated fields

    DJ Crane

      I have a Viz tied to an Excel data source (DL Tableau Starter). It uses only one tab in the Excel worksheet (DL Seed)

      Would like to apply the same Viz to a different  data in the same format (DL Seed in Opportunity Focus Working Book). Same number of rows. Field names do not change.


      I can open the new data source and use the Replace Data, but when I do, the Tableau Worksheets and Dashboard do not update. I suspect the issue lies in my use of Calculated Fields and Parameters. These probably need to be updated, but I don't find any info in the help files for doing this - or doing it efficiently.


      Thanks for guidance / assistance. TWBX attached.
