    Excel Data Source connection

    Welly Pratama

      Hello i want to ask, i just try to make a project that used excel file as the 1 of the data source, and i already place the excel file in the local machine ( tableau server ) and i'm using shared folder. Also in the tableau desktop i edit the data source connection, and navigate the data source to the shared folder.

      The reason i'm using shared folder because i want my client can access the file to update it, and the report in tableau server will be automaticly updated when the extract refresh running.

      The problem is i usually got this problem when i want to open the report in tableau server. for this problem, do you guys have a solution for that? because for the setting itself i already make it same with the previous project and the setting already open access for the admin ( the picture number 2 )
