    DATA EXTRACT: 10.5 Tableau public

    Lloyd Nagel
      • I'm using the latest version - 10.5 Tableau public.
      • I use a simple (small) Excel file to load data, which I have always just updated and refreshed. The Tableau public worksheets/dashboards/viz's then all updated perfectly.

       

      Now however - I cannot save/refresh my data – says ‘’Data extract required’’.

      There is no DATA EXTRACT option in the software though? Nothing in the data panel, nothing if i right-click...

       

      Help please..

          I only have Desktop and not Public, so I'll tell you the Desktop options and one might work in Public

           

          Try one of these (they all do the same job):

           

          - In the data panel, top right corner there is a Live/Extract radio button  .. choose Extract

          - While you're viewing a sheet, right click on the data source and choose "Extract Data ... "

          - Click on the Data menu, choose the Data source you're after and choose "Extract Data ..."

           

          Please reply if that doesn't help

            Thanks for attempting to help. As stated - I'm using the free version -

            10.5 Tableau public.

             

            - I just updated to the latest Tableau public 10.5.3

             

            - There is no DATA EXTRACT option in the software.

             

            - There is no radio button

             

            - There is no DATA EXTRACT option - not in the data panel, nothing if i

            right-click...

            I realise this is a free version, so functionality – and assistance – is

            limited. One of the pitfalls of free software..

                Hello Lloyd.

                 

                Did you publish your workbook on the tableau public site?

                 

                Cheers.

                  Hello Paulo Dantas,

                   

                  I allow myself to answer even if this message is not addressed directly to me, because I have the same problem.

                   

                  It is precisely not possible to publish on Tableau public because at the time of publication, the following error is indicated:

                   

                  An error occured while attempting to save the workbook.

                  The Tableau server you are publishing to does not permit external database connections. Use the Data menu to creat an extrat fot the following data sources : [name of the data source]

                   

                  In the database, I have 1 Excel file and 5 shapefiles.
