    Tableau Data Engine Error: 40430: error generating sort key

    Amalie Kardel Olsen

      Hi everyone,

      I just started working with Tableau and is already facing issues when trying to connect to my data.

      Hence, it states "An error occurred while communicating with the data source". Details:  "Tableau Data Engine Error: 40430: error generating sort key".

      I've tried to limit the column length in excel as advised by "error 4 questions - error generating sort key". However, it is still not working.
      I am using Tableau Desktop professional edition 10.1.3 and is trying to connect to an excel xlsx file.

      Thank you.

      Best regards,
      Amalie
