Question

How to export all sheets in a workbook into a pdf using tabcmd.

Environment

Tableau Server

Answer

You can use tabcmd export to export all Views/Sheets in a workbook into a single PDF. Here is an example of the syntax to use:

tabcmd export <Workbook/View> --fullpdf -f Filename

To read more about the "export" command, see tabcmd > export in Online Help.

There are a couple of things to note:

  1. The view name is necessary for the command to work, even though you are exporting the full workbook.

  2. Make sure to specify a filename. If no filename is specified, then all of the worksheets may not export.

  3. The workbook must have been published with Show Sheets as Tabs enabled. For additional details about this feature, see Show sheets as tabs in Tableau Help.
