    How to pass parameters to Excel

    Peter Pansen

      Hello everyone,

       

      I'm very new to Tableau and a bit overwhelmed by the possibilities and information of the software.

       

      So basically I want a simple Dashboard with some charts created of the data of excel sheets. The clue is that I want to manipulate the excel data via some kind of input field in the Dashboard. So for example I type in the value 100 in Tableau and hand it over to the excel sheet. In Excel this value changes the data and the updated data is updated in the charts in tableau.

       

      I know you can't give me a step by step walkthrough but could you give me some keywords that I can lookup that help me to implement my task.

       

      Thank you in advance

       

      Greetings

      Peter
