    General Data Set Question- Server

    Gregg Hirshberg

      I just had a pretty general question about data sets and best practices.

       

      Currently we use a rather large file, excel for now. I heard that Tableau should really be used more to summarize data, and the data set should not include the granular details. Currently we have that detail in, so we can drill down to the specific detail that drives the metric.

       

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions.

       

      (We have server, and extract a large excel file and load it to the server)
