    Programmatically change input data from file

    Jamie Antonelli

      The document API has an example for updating the input data by changing DB connection parameters:

       

      document-api-python/replicate_workbook.py at master · tableau/document-api-python · GitHub

       

      Is there an analogous procedure if the input data comes directly from a file?

       

      I have a bunch of csv files that each hold the data for a specific customer and I'd like to generate a packaged workbook for each of them.

       

      Thanks!

       

      UPDATE: Well, Since no one has better ideas it looks like XML-hacking may still be the easiest way to interact with tableau files to accomplish these sorts of tasks
