    Publishing Extract to Tableau Server has "Invalid wide string length" Error

    Justin Emerick



      I'm using Tableau 7 and Server v7. I've created an extract on a large data set and my workbook contains many reports and one dashboard. When Publishing the workbook to Tableau Server I'm also prompted to publish the extract (which is good).


      However, during the publish process "Tableau Encountered an Unexpected Error" and the text of the error is "Invalid wide string length."


      My Dashboard and about 3/4 of the reports that were published are not accessible. I can't find much in the KB articles about this error. Does anyone know more info about what causes this and how to resolve the problem?
