I've recently updated my mapping utilities to work with Tableau 8.2 (in the case of "tabgeohack") and to add support for point and polyline shape files as well as polygons (for "shapetotab").
It just occurred to me that the download links for the latest version are buried somewhere in the middle of page 22 of the gigantic Grow your own Filled Maps thread - so it will soon become really hard to find them.
So I've started this thread as a permanent location for downloading the latest versions. Then as and when new versions come out, I'll update this post so it always has links to any relevant versions.
I suggest that we keep this thread just for that and carry on using the original Grow your own Filled Maps thread for questions and support.
Summary of available versions:
Version 2.0.10 of tabgeohack is updated to work with Tableau 9.3 (due to a change in the way Zip Codes are stored). This release also contains a couple of other minor bug fixes and some changes aimed at supporting Mac (not completed).
Version 2.0.6 is still available in case of issues with the changes made for MAc support.
See the release notes (tabgeohack.txt) included with the release for details of what changed with each version.
Use tabgeohack version 1.0.13 for Tableau version 8.1 or earlier.
Version 1.0.11 of shapetotab adds support for the MULTLINESTRING geometry type which occurs in some polyline files.
Version 1.0.10 added an option to filter the contents of the shapefile, at export time.
Version 1.0.9 added support for shape files containing point or polyline features as well as polygons.
There were a few issues getting version 1.0.9 going with later versions of some of the components used, so version 1.0.8 is still available to fall back to if you have problems with the latest version.
The download files with the latest versions of both utilities include installation and usage documentation.
