    Logic of Extraction

    Kemal Gürler



      I am having difficulties to understand a point here. Right now, I am using a connector to get extracted date from SAP BW. It creates an extract, let's call it "SAP DATA"


      This will be my main data source. I will create multiple dashboards out of it. So, how am I suppose to use this extract? If I directly create a dashboard out of this extracted file, all my formulas etc will be saved to it, right? However I just want to use it as a data source.


      So, should I create new Tableau file, take extracted SAP DATA as data source, and create another extract for new Tableau file?


      SAP DATA gets refreshed every night. Therefore, should I be refreshing my Tableau file every day as well?


      I hope I explained well enough, thanks for your help.
