    Replacing a data source

    Fadil B


      I am having difficulties with replacing the current data source with a new data source  in tableau. Once I replace the file the dashboard in tableau doesn’t want to work.  Both of the data sources contain the same information so logically it should work since it holds the same values. Most of the columns/dimensions have the same names, but I am still getting errors once I replace them. The calculated fields gives me an error and does not accept the change even though the fields are very identical. I have tried to name the both of the files, sheets and dimensions but still nothing. I have also tried to place the files in the same folder with parallel formats but that didn’t do anything different. At the end whatever I have tried my dashboard does not function probably. At the time any help is appreciated since I am out of ideas when it comes to make this work.
