CauseWorkbooks are not backwards-compatible. To open a workbook created with the latest version of Tableau Desktop, you must download and install the latest version of Tableau Reader. For more information about workbook compatibility, see Version Compatibility Between Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server.
Additional InformationWorkbooks created in earlier versions of Tableau Desktop can be opened in the current version of Tableau Reader. For example, Tableau Reader 9.x can view workbooks created by Tableau Desktop 6.0-9.x. and workbooks created with a .tde format can be converted to using Hyper (though it cannot be reversed).
