    Anyone automated the process of connecting Adobe Reportbuilder scheduled Excel reports to Tableau as a live connection?

    Dheeraj Poojari

      I am trying to see if anyone has worked/thought of any processes towards using the Adobe Reportbuilder excel scheduled reports and connecting it live to a Tableau dashboard.



      1)     The Adobe Reportbuilder data-blocks in an Excel sheet "A" get refreshed every week as per the scheduling option under Adobe Reportbuilder. The data will be set to pull last week's data.

      2)     The Excel file will sit on an FTP server

      3)     The Tableau dashboard will be connected live to the Excel file sitting on FTP.

      4)     The dashboard will also be scheduled via Tableau Server to pull incremental refreshes



      Any thoughts, suggestions,process documentations?
