    Datasource connection in tableau desktop

    Sami N

      I am facing a problem with development  of Viz


      Currently my workbook is connected to 3 databases  all of them together in one tab- two of which are external and one internal.

      this workbook has all the top level reporting hence very important to keep it updated and enhanced.


      i am facing an issue of an  server down in our internal servers and wont be fixed for a month.

      The development cannot proceed  as i cannot  open the  data source  tab for the data source since the work book asks for connection every time i  want to edit it .


      since i need to quickly fix the workbook to replace  the dead server with an excel file  i am unable to do so.


      Is this something I am doing wrong or Tableau  is built that way ??
