    Connecting to an Excel file stored in Sharepoint through Tableau Desktop

    sibtain fattah

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to connect to an excel file that is stored in a sharepoint site through tableau Desktop however the connection is taking more than 5 mins to connect which in my experience isn't normal.

       

      Essentially I followed steps outlined here: Connecting to SharePoint-Based Excel File | Tableau Software

       

      What could I be doing wrong? Will I need tableau server for this?

       

      Thanks in advance!
