    Why is a data source showing Microsoft SQL Server when it is an extract?

    Daniel Gates

      I am new to Tableau and have a question about how data sources appear in Tableau Server.


      I have a data source that uses data from Microsoft SQL Server. I though I created an extract and then published it to Tableau Server.


      When I look at Tableau Server at the data source, it states it is of type Microsoft SQL Server. Is this correct behavior even if the data source is suppose to be an extract?
