    Creating an extract

    Sudha Appireddy

      Hello,

      While I am creating an extract it should ask to save the extract file in somewhere, but it's not populating it for me and saving directly somewhere else.I do not understand how to use the saved extract in new workbook.

      please help me.

          Is your workbook packaged (twbx) or unpackaged (twb)?

           

          EDIT: If it's packaged then T knows where to save the extract so it doesn't ask. A packaged workbook is really just a zip file with a different extension. Inside this zip T creates a folder structure.

            Sudha,

             

            Table Sometimes create extracts in Temporary folders "%Temp%" in Windows Search. However you can follow the following steps to create extract where your you want.

             

            1. If you have a .twbx file, convert the .twbx file to a .twb file using one of the following methods:In Tableau Desktop, open the .twb file, and then select Data > <data source name> > Extract > Remove.
              • In Tableau Desktop, open the packaged workbook (.twbx file), and then select File > Save As. Under Save as type, select Tableau Workbook (*.twb).
              • In Windows Explorer, right-click the .twbx file, and then select Unpackage.
            2. In Tableau Desktop, open the .twb file, and then select Data > <data source name> > Extract > Remove.
            3. Select Just remove the extract, and then click OK.
            4. Select  Data > <data source name> > Extract Data, and then click Extract.
            5. Select the desired location, and then click Save.

             

            Hope the above steps helps you!!

             

            It would be great if you could mark this as helpful if you like the solution.

             

            Thanks,

            Venu
