    Is it possible to automate the creation of workbook and worksheet.

      Is it possible to create a software program or a script to automatically generate worksheet visualization? The program asks for a spreadsheet file and a XML file that describe the hierarchical/relationship among all the fields. When run, the program calls some API from a Tableau server and automatically generate worksheet visualization based on some pre-defined criteria built-into the program. The reason I ask is because our department is trying to pursue other departments to use Tableau instead of spreadsheet. It will be eye-opening to them if they can run a program themselves against their spreadsheets and see the worksheet visualization right the way. They see the difference and come to us for more questions instead of us knocking on their doors to get their attention.
