    New Blog post : Don't Map Network Drives for use with Tableau, use Network Locations for hassle free data sources

    Matt Francis

      We have users that need to use Excel workbooks as datasources in their Tableau dashboards which are then published to Tableau server. However the problem lies with how Windows and Tableau use the network path names. If you map a network drive and then use this as a published data source you will get into trouble. In this blog i show you how to avoid that by using network locations instead.
