    Is it possible to create Live Connection to Excel On Shared Drive in Tableau 10.1?

      Hello Experts,


      Is it possible to create Live connection to excel on shared drive using UNC path in 10.1 and publish it to server and refresh workbook from server??

      We have provided necessary permissions  to Tableu Run As Service account on Shared Drive all parent/child folder.  But when we publish to server it throws error saying 'Unable to connect to the file.. . Check that file exists and that you have sufficient access privileges for it."


      can someone share if they are using live connection to excel on server and how they implemented solution please.
