When I try to download a published datasource from Tableau Server, on the "Data Sources" page, click the "download" button, it turned out to download a TDSX format copy.
To download a TDSX is sometimes unrealistic because it may contains huge amount of data. And what I need is exactly a TDS local copy of the datasource.
Any suggestion? Many thanks.
Note: I searched www.tableau.com and found a related post but it turned out not working... How to download an extracts tds without the extract
I got the answer: Use the "Data" Menu, under the datasouce sub-menu, select "Add to Saved Data Sources". It will save to TDS format.
