    Why is my data source not updated

    Beagle Lover

      Hello, I imported data from excel into tableau and subsequently changed some figures in excel. However, the data in tableau is not updated even though my connection is live and i have already refreshed it! Does it mean I have to re-import data from excel and re-do everything again??

          This is because your file is .twbx that's reading data from the local folder.

          Here is an example.

          Actual twbx file connected to excel:

          I saved it and closed the file. Then I updated the data source.

          I again opened the twbx file but values did not change.

          And the solution is to edit your connection:

          Specify path of the file and you should get the updated values.

           

          If this helps, please mark the answer as correct and helpful.
