    Question about updating Tableau server dashboard datasource

    Suman Bhattarai

      Hello Tableau gurus,

      I have a dashboard created via Tableau desktop which is connected to an excel file locally. I then published the workbook on the server. Each week the data source excel file is updated. Currently, I update the desktop tableau file and each week publish the updated dashboard to the server. Is there a way I could just link the dashboard that is on the Tableau server to the updated excel file which is located on my PC?

       

      When I go to the Data Source tab and click edit data source option I get the following message

       

      One or more of the selected connections do not have editable fields.

       

      Any information is much appreciated.

      Thank you
