      how to change the path. extract time user define path dialog box was not shown.

       

       

      Thanks,

      Muni

          Hi Muni,

           

          If you are not seeing the locate/regenerate the extract dialogue on logging in there are a couple of ways of going about this:

           

          1. Open the workbook, create a new connection to the new location / extract, this shall be added to the connections list then right-mouse select the exiting extract and choose replace, on the new dialogue, ensure the new connection is marked as the replacement .
          2. If 1 is not available, you can open the workbook (the *.tde file) in any text editor Notepad++ for example and use find & replace on the old extract and replace with the new, just remember to save not save as at the end.

          If you are working with a packaged workbook, wither right-mouse select the workbook and choose unpackage or, change the extension to .zip so it should read as *.twbx.zip open this and extract the workbook.tde file

            Hi Steve,

             

            the file .tbw time location directory has shown, but .tbwx file directly saved in temp path.

             

            What is the reason tbwx file extractor saved in temp path ?

             

            Thanks,

            Muni

              Hi Muni,

               

              The twb and twbx are different files, the twb is the Tableau workbook and subsequently that whose xml can be edited in any text editor, the twbx is the packaged workbook which is more a container object holding the twb[, any external data and images and data connections; if we are working with a twbx, you will not be able to edit the xml direct without first extracting the twb from this.
