Not sure what you mean by "portlet". Tableau has it's own file format as TWB or TWBX. These can be shared with other Tableau Desktop users. These can be published to Tableau Server. The Tableau file includes what was selected from the database, the views, the various features selected, and lots of other data that applies to the Tableau environment. You would need to have a demo of Tableau to understand it better.
Yes, if 150 records were selected, these can be exported to .CSV files. You can share the visualization with others via Tableau Server or by emailing the TWB or TWBX file to other Tableau Desktop users.
It sounds like you are not aware of what Tableau is and can do. It would be best to schedule a call with one of our sales people to help you understand our technology and where we can help you make an evaluation. Here is our listing of contacts: https://www.tableau.com/about/contact
Hello Mr. Heyward,
My question is as simple as it is written in points. "Portlet" - which an end-user would essentially see in application. Am very much aware of tableau and I still see there is lot to learn in an interactive way and understand it. This was a feasibility check in tableau.
Thanks for your reply and knowledge-sharing.

Oh ok. I've never run into a question referring to anything in Tableau referred to as a portlet. We do offer an embedded Tableau option whereby you can use an iFrame and copy a particular workbook view as an iframe in an external Portal or Sharepoint. You can do this by looking at this page: https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/embed.htm
I think that is what you want to use so that Tableau content appears in a portal as a portlet. That is one way to view content while the other way is via the web browser directly logged into Tableau Server.
Thank you Mr. Heyward
