    Trouble Refreshing from an excel sheet

    Jonathan Squires



      When i try to refresh form an excel sheet I am getting the following error.

      Failed to connect to database. The table "[TableauTemp].[TableA$]" does not exist. Unable to connect to the file "". Check that the file exists and that you have sufficient access privileges for it.

      I have connected to this datafile many times previously with out error.

      I have historic versions of the excel sheet that when i restore will load, but if I refresh the data in the excel sheet then save I can not connect to the data.


      looking in the Log file this looks like it may be the bit where it fails......
