    Tableau uses temp tables even when instructed not to!

    Ali Kashmar

      Hello,

       

      I'm using a Generic ODBC connection in Tableau with CAP_CREATE_TEMP_TABLES = "NO" in the TDC file and Tableau respects this most of the time, except when using filter conditions on a row/column e.g. selecting only the top 10 rows that match a certain condition. Once I use any filter condition, Tableau throws an error dialog saying it cannot create temporary tables.

       

      Is this a known issue in Tableau?

       

      Thanks,

      Ali
