You'll still need to create a crosstab style report in Tableau if you want to display it within a Tableau dashboard.
Is there something wrong with this approach?
If you're simply looking to display the content of an Excel worksheet, and not actually work with it as a datasource, then use something like Snipping Tool (it's bundled with Win Vista, 7 and forward I think) and save the image as a png or pg file. Then select 'image' on a dashboard and load the image in.
Another option...use the Snipping tool, copy, paste into powerpoint, do whatever you like with it (annotations, callouts..) save the slide as a png or jpg file and load it into Tableau the same way as above.
Or copy the excel selection, paste into powerpoint, annotate..whatever you want to do with it, save the slide as a png or jpg file...etc..as above
ok... sounds like I have to create something as I don´t want to have a pdf in there as the data will fill up over one season and I wanted to have a dynamic overview. hmmmm

Is it not possible to upload the raw data into Tableau, and then just make a table in tableau in the same format and organized the same way as your excel sheet? This way, your Tableau dashboard will show the same data as you excel sheet, and will be updated when you update your excel sheet.
