    How to bring only required columns from Datasource tables, instead of Full Tables

    sam bi

      Hi, I am new to Tableau and have a basic question on how to bring only required columns from each data source table into Tableau instead of full tables.


      I have 4 tables joined together for a Dashboard. Each of these tables have 50, 60 columns. But for my dashboard i just need 4,5 fields from each table. How can i just import required fields into Tableau instead of all the fields from all tables.


      I am in Tableau 10 and its taking lot of time to launch initially and to open the workbook. I am working with Extract and created data source filters to restrict data.
