    Tableau Reader and Data Extracts

    Jordan Peck

      Hi all,


      I'm trying to export a Tableau workbook to a packaged workbook, so it is readable in Tableau Reader. The original workbook is connected to a Redshift database. When I export as a packaged workbook I get the "Tableau Reader cannot open files referencing an external data source" error.


      I go back into my Desktop workbook, right click the Redshift data source, click extract and create the necessary .tde file. I then File > Save As a .twbx file, and I still get the same error.


      And ideas why this might be?
