          Hi,

           

          Can you make sure the extension of your tableau file is .tbw and not .tbwx? Are you having problem in tableau desktop or server?

            Hi,

             

            Please check whether your updated are paused or not??

            If your updates are OK then refresh your data.

            Or save your workbook then close it and reopen the workbook.

            I hope this can fix your issue.

              Hi sriram,

               

              IF you are using data connection as live then move to any one of the worksheet select Data-> Datasource name -> Refresh

               

              For extract select Data-> Refresh all extracts option or if only particular datasource then select Data -> Data extract name -> Extract -> Refresh

                  Hi,

                   

                  Sounds interesting. Did you try to refresh thumbnails in tableau desktop?

                   

                  Once you open the Tableau workbook, see right corner below, you will find filmstrip icon. Press that.

                   

                  Once you see Tableau images, right click on it and select refresh thumbnails. This will refresh your cache.

                   

                  If in case, you are using extract data, you might remove the .tde file and try again.

                    Did we lose the option to right click and refresh? I am having issues refreshing my data as well with 9.3

                      Tableau 9.3 has so many BUGS and especially on data refresh.

                       

                      Currently my problem is on Sync Client, all local txt refresh were unsuccessful because I use multiple txt files with joins to form one data source, when I refresh this data source the file path I choose is the first txt I imported. Sync Client gives me the following error:

                       

                      Unable to refresh the data source because of an unsupported operation.

                      The data source uses multiple files (tables), but only one was expected because a full path was provided.

                       

                      I have to go back to 9.2.
