Issue

The option to "Append data from data source" in the Extract menu does not appear as expected.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 9.2.4

Resolution

Ensure that the column fields' names and types in the primary data source are identical to those in the data source to be appended. Any variation, and the data sources will not be compatible.

The option will not show in the Extract menu, until there is a compatible data to be appended.

Additional Information

As of Tableau Desktop version 9.2.4, if the data source to be appended is not compatible, it will not appear in the "Append data from data source" Extract menu.
