I would like my published workbook to run off of an extract (which will be refreshed on a schedule) but I don't want to generate an extract on my PC before publishing the workbook.
The reason for this is that the extract takes too long to generate on my PC (over an hour) and i don't have time to wait for it to finish.
For instance, would it be possible to publish my workbook with a live connection and generate an extract on the server, which refreshes according to a schedule, and set the workbook read from that?
