    "Loading Metadata" problem with a simple table

    Andrew Marsh

      I have a simple (Oracle) table of refence data with 10 rows and 13 columns.

       

      When I include the table in a Tableau Data Source, Tableau hangs in the "Loading Metadata" step. (This happens even when this is the only table in the Data Source).

      This used to work but recently fails even on established operational reports.

       

      If I create a "Custom SQL" with Select * from the same table  then Tableau works as it should.

       

      DBAs tell me there have been no changes to this table reently.

       

      Can anyone explain this weirdness?

       

      (This seems to be the opposite of  Connection Stuck in "Loading Metadata" )
