    Change data source to a published source

    Jerimiah Kent



      I have a number of reports that I have built based on the same Excel book. It recently occurred to me that it would make more sense to use a published data source instead - I am new to Tableau so I am still learning. I published my data source however the problem I have now is how do I point all of my existing reports at that source. I can connect to a new source but that means that I have to rebuild all of my visualizations. I can point my data source at a different Excel file and I am pretty sure Tableau said that it would automatically convert the to use this published data source but that is only in the one workbook. Is there a way to change the Excel file on a network share to be a published data source instead?
