    Filter that can point to different datasources


      Hi All,


      I am new to tableau and i am in a situation where my requirement is as explained below:


      I have 52 worksheets each sheet for each state in USA.The columns in every sheet are same.

      Can I use these worksheets as separate Datasources in Tableau workbook.

      Can I have a filter which contains list of states and when one state is selected, the dashboard will show that states data.

      Each drop down item(state name) should be getting the data from a single sheet.


      Please let me know if this is possible to achieve in tableau.


      In order to have a single big Datasource instead of different files for each state, the number of rows are going beyond 200 million rows.

      Kindly comment on this approach aswell.
