    Data not saving

    Lyndsie Williams

      Hello,

       

      I recently purchased and downloaded tableau desktop and tableau data. I created a couple of maps in desktop tableau. After I saved the program I closed it and when I opened it back up it my maps are not viewable or editable because the system is telling me the data from the excel file I downloaded wasn't available. Do I need to save the data in a separate place than the maps?

          That depends on how you saved the workbook - it's your choice whether the data is separate from the workbook or contained within it.

           

          Can you post a screenshot of the exact error ?

           

          If it's publicly available data, you can attach the workbook and data as well and it's easier to fix the problem
