I am using Tableau Public. Whenever I try to connect it to Excel, Tableau starts executing the query and never stops (I waited up to 25 minutes for a 5000-row file, but I tried with smaller excel files and it did not work either). If I cancel the process, the application freezes. I am using a Macbook 12-inch. I attached a picture of my laptop specifics and a screenshot of Tableau
What version of Tableau Public are you using?
