    Unable to open Tableau 9 workbook with Tableau 8.2

    Steven Graunke

      Someone in my organization created a Tableau workbook using a free trial version of Tableau 9.  I have Tableau 8.2 desktop installed, and whenever I try to open one of her workbooks, I receive an error, "Errors occurred while trying to load the workbook [file extension for workbook]. The load was not able to complete successfully."

       

      Is Tableau backwards compatible from 9 to 8.2?  Can we save a workbook in version 9 that can be opened in 8.2?

       

      Thanks much!
