In the documentation for Packaged Workbooks you will find this explanation
"Packaged workbooks contain the workbook along with a copy of any local file data sources and background images. The workbook is no longer linked to the original data sources and images."
Try working with a non-packaged workbook that uses a live connection to fix it.
For more information look at this page regarding packaged workbooks: Packaged Workbooks
You can always change a packaged workbook to a non packaged workbook by choosing Save-As and changing the data type to .twb again.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your answer, Matthias! I cannot change packaged workbook to workbook because other user are going to open it in Tableau Reader. So as far as I understand there is no way to keep packaged workbook updated without refreshing extract and changing the data source manually every time?
If I understand it correctly then you are working with a Packaged Workbook that tries to have a live connection?
Well Tableau (the company) is not stupid !
They give an option to share Tableau Workbooks for free by offering Tableau Reader but the downside is the maintenance of the workbooks.
In case you want all of this to happen automatically, you will need to have a Tableau Server.
I'm afraid you don't really have a lot of options when you need to work with Tableau Workbooks in combination with Tableau Reader.
