    Editing Data Connection in Tableau Prep hangs

    Jeff Paul

      I have a workflow with many joins connected to a large Tableau Extract.  I needed to point to a different copy of this extract (different folder/name).  When I went into Prep and edited the connection, I can select the new TDE file, but then the program freezes up.   If I add the TDE as a second source (new connection), then modify my workflow to use it, that works fine, but Edit Connection would be easier and should work.


      I've also had Prep hang when I try to switch from Quick Select to Random Sample for this same large extract.  If I make the change upfront, it works fine.  I tried to change it after building out a large workflow, and it froze up, then the screen went white.


      Has anyone else experienced these problems?
