    Excel not refreshing

    Shahzad Bashir

      Hi

       

      I have excel as source file. previosuly I use to update the source file via Edit Connection couple of times and it use to work. Now I am these these errors.

       

       

       

      An error occurred while communicating with data source 'NAME'.

       

      Bad Connection: Tableau could not connect to the data source.

      all inputs to union must have matching column types

      Unable to create extract

       

       

       

      sometimes

       

       

       

       

       

       

      I did make sure the file I am re-uploading/refreshing with has the same headers. basically new date. but everything is same. I did go back to the older version (not tableau software version) instead of my tableau file. (e.g version 1, version 2 etc.) no luck

       

      any help?

       

      Thanks!
