    How Do I Connect To An Online CSV XLS

    Erik Protzman

      Hi All

       

      Just starting my tableau journey.

       

      One of the first things I want to do is start working with some data that is posted monthly by the Reserve Bank.

      They post the data in both xls and csv files online.

      I know I could download and import the data but I want to build a dashboard which automatically updates without my involvement.

       

      Is this possible and if so how do I go about doing this so that my dashboard automatically refreshes when the new data is available?

       

      Two examples files are here:

      http://www.rba.gov.au/statistics/tables/csv/c1-data.csv

      http://www.rba.gov.au/statistics/tables/xls/c01hist.xls

       

      The file names never change from month to month.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
