    unable to extract data from an external SQLite database

    Joe Smith

      I have a packaged workbook which refers to an external SQLite database file.

       

      I'm unable to extract the data for this workbook as shown below following the instruction shown on:

      https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/help.htm#save_savework_packagedworkbooks.html

       

      There is a reminder in the process to "reconnect to" the SQLite database. I'm not sure if this is the cause.

       

      Appreciate your advice on this matter if you have encountered similar issue before.

       

      Thanks.

       

      1. select "Extract Data..." by right-click the data source
