    Extremely slow connecting to a Tableau Prep Extract from within Desktop -- Why?

    Carmen Torres

      Hi All,


      I created a .hyper extract (within Tableau Prep) that only has 111,042 rows and 3 columns.  I'm now in Tableau Desktop and I added a connection to this extract file from the Data Source workspace.  I've been sitting here for the past 45 minutes, watching the Loading Data dialog box, waiting for the data to display.  Can someone tell me how to speed this up this process?  Also, why it is taking so long?
