I've faced this issue in the past as well. When you are on your dashboard, Tableau exports the data of the last "sheet" you click on. Since the back button is a sheet in your workbook, it will try to export data from that sheet.
What you need to do is click on the data part of your dashboard to re-activate that as the last sheet. Once you click on the data, it should allow you to export accordingly.
Thank goodness Eric, you responded. I've asked this question to many people and searched online, but I wasn't able to figure out the reason why it is behaving like that. My only hope was this Forum. BIG THANKS for preventing me from the "back button download drowning", appreciate it
Needless to say- it WORKED
