I have a script that overwrites an Excel file when it is updated - I'm pointing at this file in Tableau but I'm wondering if there is any way to retain the connection when the file updates? I get the impression that Tbaleau maps to a file ID rather than a name (which makes sense) so I'm assuming this isn't possible?
If you have a workaround using Google Sheets/Drive et al. I'd also be interesitng in hearing about it.
Thanks in advance,
Are you using a live connection or an extract ?
I believe it should work fine with an extract though.
