    How to properly important an SQL query (data set) into Tableau

    Douglas Brockbank

      I want to bring an SQL query (data set) into Tableau. The SQL query has multiple INNER JOINS. When I run it in Teradata, there are 233,000 records.

       

      Next, in Tableau, I've connected to the database and table.

       

      Can I simply do #1, #2 or other?

       

      1 Go to  'Data' > <Name> > 'Query Branding and Initial SQL' and put the SQL query there
      AND/OR

      2. Do # 1 AND  drag-and-drop the drag and drop tables and connect the tables in the section called 'Drag tables here'
