    Cannot connect Tableau to a DB2 database without going through ODBC

    Erin Parrish-Dickson

      Hello,

       

      I have tried using the following article (https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/examples_db2.html) to connect SkilMatch, a DB2 database to Tableau, but we don't have the SSL connection available to us (cannot find the v10.5fp3 download on the Internet).

       

      I have connected through ODBC, but I am told there are a lot of capabilities that Tableau can't do this way (see attached) and I have to look up tables manually, one-at-a-time, and/or Tableau crashes on me.

       

      Anyone out there have this error message and/or problem or if you know the solution, your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thank you.

       

      Erin
