Option 1This issue can occur when Tableau is unable to determine the correct location of the saplogon.ini file. To resolve this issue, add or verify a system environment variable on the machine running Tableau called SAPLOGON_INI_FILE that points to the correct location of the file. Alternatively, you can copy the saplogon.ini file to the C:\Windows directory.
Option 2Review the formatting of the saplogon.ini file. Under the [Description] section, check for blank/missing entries. Remove any blank entries (ie: 'Item1=') and ensure that the remaining Item entries are numerically sequential, renaming the connections to start at 'Item1' (ie, 'Item1=SAP BW Development System').
Option 3For older versions of the product, upgrade to Tableau Desktop 9.0.4. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop.
CauseTableau Desktop stops importing the SAP BW connection entries upon hitting the blank entry. This can result in either blank or incomplete SAP BW connection information in Tableau Desktop.
