    Girdhari Sharma


      I am trying to connect to sharepoint excel web file. but not able to access it.


      following are the steps i have done

      1. New Data Source from Tableau. Select Web Data Connector. (connected WBS thru webconnector - http://data.theinformationlab.co.uk/sharepoint.html)

      2. on the link - http://data.theinformationlab.co.uk/sharepoint.html entered

      3. now, provided tableau link. it goes to the same link & asks for Sharepoint Base URL.


      request any one to provide details.

      means we are connecting out shareppoint server  from - http://data.theinformationlab.co.uk/sharepoint.html to our sharepoint server.

      when i click on my direct URL it's giving me data. but when i want to get data from the full path till my folder, then it's giving me error.

      request you if we can have a webinar & you suggest me ontthe same.
