    Unable to Edit Excel once report is published on Tableau Server

    Ahmed Imran

      I have published a Dashboard with Live connection to Excel without option 'Include External File' checked. My Excel file is placed at a shared location and Tableau user can read it. Once published, I was hoping that I can modify Excel file and data will reflect on the dashboard. For some reason, I am unable to modify Excel spreadsheet. The following error is thrown every time I try to save changes in Excel document. I tried making Excel file as a shared file and that did not resolve the problem. I also noticed that issue happens when Excel file size is large (>2MB). I tried with a sample set of 5 rows and I was able to modify Excel without any issue. Please let me know if there is a solution to this issue.
