    v8.2 appending data from excel files

    ryan.mcmillin

      Hi all,

       

      I'm having issues with 8.2 when it comes to appending data from a file. In the previous version, I had no issues with this process. With this version, whenever I try to add a data from a file (all excel .xlsx documents) to an extract, I get an error where Tableau cannot locate the first data extract's location.


      When I examined the Extract Properties, the database location looks to be possibly a TableauTemp folder and is not where I'm saving the connection/extracts. When I performed the same task in 8.1, the database location for the extract was identical to where I saved it.

       

      Any suggestions as how to resolve this issue? Can I change something so the Extract Database isn't going to this random location in 8.2?

       

      Thanks!
