Using VBA I made this: Tableau Server Xml Extractor
In that thread is a list of all the informational .xml files I know of that can be pulled.
I wish I knew PowerShell, looks more useful than cmd (a.k.a. DOS, which I know fairly well). There's almost nothing I can't do in VBA but when it comes to automation on a server that doesn't have MS Office products on it, well, VBA no longer matters
