Hi Rush, using the global-superstore.xlsx file works for me with Tableau Public. What are the steps you're taking with this file that causes the error?
Hi Jeff, thank you for the quick response.
I use the "Connect to a file" option, then select "Microsoft Excel"
I've tried using the legacy connection method but got the same result. I have also tried simply dragging and dropping into Tableau but got the error again.
May I ask what method you used? Perhaps I am missing something.

Hi Rush, I have no problem opening global-superstore.xlsx (via Connect to File > Excel). Please list all the steps you're taking, until you see a problem -- and if the first problem isn't the red exclamation mark, then provide details on that.
Two more things:
1) The error message says to edit the datasource. Have you tried that? Does anything seem wrong with the information displayed?
2) If you haven't already done so, update to the latest version of Tableau Public.
