Hi Niraj, a text file can be published as a Tableau Data source. Per Publishing Data Sources online help. "Finally, if you are publishing an external file data source or a data source that is on a mapped drive select to Include External Files. When you include external files, a copy of the data source is published. External file data sources include Excel, Access, Text, Data Extract, and image files. If you don’t include these files, others may not be able to see the worksheets online."
Hi Jen, thanks for your answer, this seems reasonable. But I can not see 'Include External Files' option. Can you please tell where such an option is there? A screenshot will be very helpful.
