I'm a new Tableau user with a lot of questions
Working with Retail Pro 9 and would like to start by creating some simple dashboards.
Retail Pro 9 uses an embedded Oracle database with somewhat restricted access.
Their "RP9 Database and Custom Programming Guide" states:
Due to licensing constraints, direct access to the Oracle tables is not allowed. For custom reporting and development, read-only access to the data is granted through Views, and data can be imported into Retail Pro through ECM using XML.
However, that said, I have been able to successfully connect to the database.
I am able to query the tables using SQL Developer.
And I am able to load the Tables and Views into Tableau (with some restricted exceptions)
There just isn't a lot of information available about the structure and where I might find the 'valuable' data I need.
Just looking to create some general visualizations around simple things to start with like:
I am hoping someone in the Tableau Community can provide some guidance!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or direction!
Hi Kim Vinson,
I dont know about the Retail Pro 9 . But you are talking about creating some views or dashboards which will get the valued information.
