    Logic of Extraction

    Kemal Gürler

      Hello,

       

      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.
