When you use the "View Data" option, you are viewing data for an existing connection. Why don't you just reuse that same connection in a new workbook?
my goal is just to use the extract of data within my analysis I get with filtering marking and so on. With filtering, marking etc I create a new subset of data within a report, that can be the basis for a further analysis. Instead of export this subset and load it again, I want to keep it in my current analysis/workbook, so that other users can use this and work on this further.
Unfortunately there's no way to transfer this subset into a new source which is available for new workbooks. At least not a built in method I can think of anyway.
Perhaps it would make sense to apply your filters as Data Source filters within Tableau and publish / save that connection for further use?
can I use the "View data" option as a database, that can be used directly in the report as a new datasource without first export this as csv.
Yes, if we are talking about very small data, we can just select all, copy, and paste:
When i mark data, I want to use this directly for further analysis in tableau, but don't want to export this firts. Is there a way to paste or save it directly in my current report.
I think you will need to save your workbook as twbx and assume that is what you do.
You can influence Tableau to improve and expand their analytical data flow options by posting, up-voting and commenting ideas such as:
that's fine! And what I'm looking for the moment.
Great! Glad to hear
Ps. I like your question very much. Tableau's analytic (data) flow features have room for improvements in this regard. Questions like yours are evidence of this!
Sorry I overthought the requirement gentlemen! I assumed you needed something more reusable and shareable than this.
I use the copy / paste dataset feature into Tableau all the time. I wish more people knew about it!
there are some co-analysts they will work further with this subsets of data. I guess in enterprise companies you will more often have this requests to work on further with an outcome or selection you find in your report.

I too Do you also use it in ways Martin described? I haven't.
My impression is that statisticians with background in statistical tools like SAS and R prefer to analyse data in steps, both upwards (build data sets upon other data sets) and sideways (compare data sets). I have no experience in SAS and R though, but think SQLish about data.
