    How to refresh only one table in a multiple table extract ?

    Barthelemy Vaireaux

      Hi

       

      I work with an extract that is basically one huge table of transactional data, plus 3 dimensions tables, that are much smaller.

      Embracing the value of having this simple star schema, at the database level, updating a dimension does not imply to update the whole transactional data set...

       

      But when in Tableau, I don't know how to refresh only my dimension tables in my extract.

      So when a simple dimension changes, I have to refresh the whole extract, which takes a lot more time.

       

      Do you know if/how it's possible to only refresh one table in a multiple table extract ?

       

      Thanks a lot !
