    Tableau 2018.2.3 desktop fails to create extract

    Jeff Bryant

      I am having an issue creating an extract of a large file using Tableau Desktop 2018.2.3.


      I am not using custom SQL but I am filtering the records on a date field such that I am only including those records with a date of >= 01/01/2015 from a PostgreSQL table.   The extract begins and then randomly hangs up at various counts.  There have been multiple times  when the extract seems to have completed however Tableau asks me if I'd like to reconnect to the datasource.  Doing so simply connects to the live datasource again.  I've been fighting with this for 2 days now.


      I have nothing to upload as an example as I can't get the extract to create.


      Any help  would be greatly appreciated.
