    Trouble connecting to a .xlsx file after convertsion from .xlsb

    Paul Sutherland

      I have an .xlsb file that I want to connect to. I first tried using a legacy connection, but got the following error:

       

                          "Internal Error -- An unexpected error occurred and the operation could not be completed"

       

      Next, I saved the .xlsb file as a .xlsx file and tried to connect to the .xlsx version. There was no error thrown when connecting, but when I navigate to a worksheet there is a red exclamation point next to the data source and when I hover over it the following error message is displayed:

       

                     "There was a problem connecting the data source "FILE_NAME". Try editing the data source."

       

      I am using Tableau 10.2

       

      Thank you and let me know if you need further information.
