    What is the purpose of the database in the Temp directory?

    Tom Wikle


      I have been getting errors when opening workbooks. The errors concern connecting to the datasource. The datasource listed is something like this:

       

      C:\Users\txwikle\AppData\Local\Temp\TableauTemp\806137009\Data\<database>

       

      Why does Tableau do this? I Notice the path is always changing. I haven't found any documentation on this. My database is big (185 MB) and Tableau seems to be making multiple coplies of this. I am using 9.3 (32 bit) and Access 2013.
