    Joining SQL Server Data & Excel

    Sebastian Thierfelder

      Dear Tableaurians,


      I am trying to join a data table from a Microsoft SQL server with an Excel table (the sheet is neatly prepped for Tableau).


      Unfortunately I get the following message:



      Just FYI, the SQL data table contains info on shipped orders by ZIP. The excel file contains transactions also on a ZIP level.
      My goal was to join them through this shared dimension.


      Any idea why this happens? I assumed that this join was in principle possible.


      Thanks in advance!!
