    can Excel data extract file be changed by user?

    SeaUrchin

      Hi, I was wondering if this is possible:

      I've got a Tableau report already that connects to an Excel data extract.  Every so often, the data extract needs to be overwritten - a new file is supplied.  Is there an object I can put on the report that the user can drop their Excel file?  The users and myself do not have a common area to put the file.

       

      I'd run the report locally because the user can't update the file that resides on my machine.  I'm hoping to publish the report and with the user being able to change or edit the data extract.
