    How to tell Tableau to refresh only one data extract as per schedule when 2 or more data extracts are used in a workbook?

      Hi,

       

      I have a workbook which is based on 2 extracts. For example as in screenshot below:

       

      • Extract 1 is based on excel stored on shared network.
      • Extract 2 is based on connection to a live database.

       

      I want to choose to only extract the ‘Extract 2’ everyday but not ‘Extract 1’ because the data is static for a long time, it’s from a distinct source and not a live external database, so it has to be manually exported to excel and updated on a need basis on the network folder.

      Does Tableau have an ability to refresh just one extract say ‘Extract 2’?
