    Tableau Prep Command Line Error - Found errors in the flow file. Cannot run the flow.

    David White

      Can anyone help?  I get this error when running a a command line flow from my local hard disk, I have admin privileges.  Found errors in the flow file. Cannot run the flow.  Please open the flow file in the Tableau Prep Desktop to see details.

       

      This is the command line:  "\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Prep 2018.2\scripts"\tableau-prep-cli.bat -t "C:\Users\sesa20884\Desktop\Data_Extracts\Employee_Dashboard_Flow-NEW-r1.tfl"

       

      When I go back to desktop there are no errors messages and the flow runs fine when ran manually.  The output of the flow is to the tableau server

       

      Here is the error from the logs:
