I'm wanting to create an extract from salesforce and have a couple of issues.
1. I want the extract/tde file to be on the network. Do i have to set my tableau repository to this network location? I have tried a couple of ways to move the tde from my c: repository to the network but, having copied it across, and deleted it from the original location, tableau insists on making a fresh extract by connecting to salesforce. I cant work out how to get it to use the tde i previously copied across.
2. For QA purposes I want to keep a sequential series of tdes. eg one a week. But again, I cant see how to create and use the new extract without over-writing the old ones.
Do you not receive a prompt asking you to find the extract when opening the workbook after having moved it? If you create a new connection to an extract and point it to the network drive, does it work?
