Just copy and paste one worksheet or dashboard to a new Tableau window so that it is isolated.
Save as whatever name, and then navigate to that file, and see about its size.
Thanks for the answer, this is usefull, but i have mmor than 90 worksheets and dashborards, making one by one will be hard.
Dont you know another option?
generally speaking the underlying worksheets will be small as the viz is represented by underlying XML. What takes up the most space is the data extracts. If you save your workbook in twb format, then it will create the twb (which is the underlying XML) and then it will create other files within the data directory associated to this twb. So how big is each?
That would give the size of the .twb, but I think he is looking for the sizes of the sheets comprising that .twb.
Also Jorge, a .twb file is an XML data structure in the following setup:
A list of worksheets
A list of dashboards
Each element in the list of workbooks cannot stand alone without the data connection, which is universal to all workbooks and dashboards.
Are you looking for the sizes of each element alone, or the sizes of each connection-worksheet pairs, i.e.:
It stands that the sum of such connection-worksheet pairs is much greater than the size of the .twb file since the data connection is duplicated 90 times.
Thanks again for the answer, i´m looking for the sieze of each element alone.
Why? Just curious how this information is helpful to you.
Is for report an aproximated size that i will use in one server, but i have the same question,i really dont know why they are asking so specifically this requeriments.

It sounds like the people asking the question may not understand that Tableau is sort of a "different animal" and applying "old questions" to it won't be of much value. If I were in your shoes, I'd question them and use this as an opportunity to start helping them catch up with what is going in the modern world. (That last sentence may come off as snarky, and it's not meant to be). If your business sponsors use the same criteria to judge Tableau that they used to judge their "old" platforms, your life will be difficult
