    Extra files in Tableau?

    Ashley Rovenski

      Every time I open Tableau and try to connect to a CSV file I've created in Alteryx, my "File" area on the Data Source page has 7 files that show up. These files aren't part of the CSV file (you can't even do multiple tabs with CSV), but they still show up. I'm not sure if they are affecting my data in any way, but it's concerning that they exist at all. There doesn't seem to be any way to remove them. Is it just showing a list of recent files or is something else going on?

       

      I've circled in red the actual file I'm trying to connect to and showing its connection in the "Connections" pane. I just don't know why any of the other files are displaying.
