Where is your Excel file located?
If the file is on your file server, please make sure,
- the path is correct, see Unable to Update the UNC Path for a Published Excel Data Connection | Tableau Software
- your Tableau Server has the access right to this path
The excel is on my local server.
I checked the link you said but I can't see Create Local Copy anywhere. But when I created the data source, I entered the UNC path to the file.
Any other ideas?
I would challenge why you are pointing a Tableau Server workbook to a local data source. It would be best if you moved the file to the Tableau Server machine. Then use a refresh on that onel
More than likely, the Tableau Server does not have full access rights to the location where the Excel file is stored.
