    How does the querying work in Tableau

    Nagaraja ganiga

      Hi everyone,


      I'm new to Tableau,

      Can anyone please tell me If I'm trying to pull the data connecting to any database, say MS sql server, am I extracting all the data into Tableau desktop and execute the query so as to pull the required data (Which I think not) or am I only extracting the required data after querying into tableau.


      Let's say the server has 2GB of data and the required data out of it is just 100MB,

      Now am I Extracting the whole 2GB data into Tableu so as to execute the query.



      Like I said I'm pretty new to Table so Please don't mind if it is really silly.
