    Excel Lock - Tableau Publish Include External Files

    Nick Constant

      Hi

       

      I have a issue when i publish a workbook with an excel file connection, the file works fine and updates perfectly but when the file reaches 1mb it locks, it doesn't allow me to save the excel file and says "Someone else is accessing the file", the excel file doesn't look like anyone else is using it but when you save it stops you from saving the file.

       

      I have worked it out that when my excel reaches the magic 1mb, it stops allowing me to edit it after that point.

       

      I don't know if this is a setting i have not set on my workbook or if this is a server setting that needs to be changed?

       

      Some insite would be great.

       

      Cheers
