    Has anybody created a live data connection b/w Tableau Dashboard and a Sharepoint Excel?

    Dillon OBrien

      My goal is to create a live data connection between a Tableau dashboard and an excel file on Sharepoint (i.e making edits to excel file with update the dashboard automatically). I have read just about every blog on ways to connect through Access, UNC link, etc. and no luck. I am hoping this isn't a server/permission issue with SharePoint.

       

      Below are a couple screenshot is of our dashboard when I try publishing it to the server after clicking the checkbox for “Include External Files”, and the second screenshot is of the window with the “Include External Files” checkbox.
