    Connecting Tableau desktop to excel data on a SharePoint 365 site (not OneDrive)

    Parth Nikhra

      I am a SharePoint developer and have been asked to help connect an excel file stored in a SharePoint Online/Office 365 groups site, to Tableau Desktop. Our client is using Tableau 10.3 and requires an excel file to be used as a data source in Tableau. I have seen a few articles on the community, of successful attempts at connecting to SharePoint On-premise using WebDAV and UNC path, but this does not work with SharePoint Online (cloud-based, no access to servers). Is there a connector that I can use (preferably not 3rd party like 'the information lab').

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks in advance.
