I have an excel file that is about 170gb and it will not refresh on the server. The refresh will start but never finish. No error appears, the load just disappears from the background tasks for extracts.
The largest file I tested that did complete was 135gb.
We have the timeout set to 14500 seconds on the server.
We are on 9.3.1
Is there a size limit for excel to be able to refresh on the server?
Patty - are you able to load a file that large on Tab Desktop? This is a monster Excel source - yikes. There is this article - Data and File Size Limitations with Jet-Based Data Sources | Tableau Software covering size limitations with Excel as well.
