    Refresh published workbook automatically upon opening

    Cindy Winegarden

      Using Tableau 10.


      I have a view in my database that I am modifying to alternate between big numbers and zeroes. Easy to tell if a datasource refreshes this way.


      I have a datasource connected to this view that is set to extract. When I change the view definition I go to the server and refresh this extract. (My goal is to refresh on a schedule.)

      I have a TWB workbook with one sheet which has a live connection to this datasource and has a list of the rows of data with either big numbers or zeroes. I have published it to the server.

      The problem I have is that I would like the server workbook to refresh automatically when it opens. However, I have to click Refresh for this to occur.


      What am I missing?

      Alternatively, is there a way to automatically refresh the workbooks when the datasource has updated?

      Thanks for your help!
