    Condensing the size of .twbx files for Tableau Reader?

    Alexander Elfering

      Hello,

       

      My Tableau workbooks are connected to Microsoft SQL Server, and I join multiple tables together needed to build reports. Recently I have been trying to get into Tableau Reader, and have tried condensing our workbooks into extracts and .twbx files that Reader will recognize. However. that forces Tableau to condense millions of rows of data and ultimately creates a file that is too unwieldy to send to my contacts. I realized that I am not using all of the data from every table I have joined from SQL - would eliminating those unused tables make my .twbx file smaller?

       

      Thanks,
