    Tableau reader doesn't update workbook

    Vihar Parikh

      My data source is MySQL DB. I have MySQL and Tableau Desktop both installed on the same machine(it is a virtual machine). I can successfully save a .twb file from Tableau. Every time I try to save it as .twbx, it asks me to extract data first. I extracted data and resaved as .twbx file so Tableau Reader can open the file.

       

      However, tableau reader then doesn't update the workbook if there is a change in my DB after I save the .twbx file. Does that mean I have to extract data and save worksheet as .twbx every time someone makes a change in the DB? Is there another way to automatically have updated DB values in Tableau Reader?

       

      Thanks
