    How to add Excel data to an existing Tableau Chart

    Annie Lum

      Hi All,


      I've created a Time series chart in Tableau.  Please see below.  This is created using a link to SQL Server.


      I have an Excel file which has a list of incidents.  This has Incident Date and Short Description. eg. There is an incident record created for the 2 spikes in the chart above.

      I'd like to blend with the Excel file so that I can label the incident on the above chart with the description,  Previously we had labelled these manually in Tableau but I'd rather blend with the Excel file.  Any advise/tips please.


      Thank you.
