Question

How do we connect to multiple files at once using the OneDrive and SharePoint Online connector?

Environment

Tableau Desktop 2023
Tableau Prep Builder 2023

Answer

There is not currently a method to connect to multiple files using the OneDrive/Sharepoint Connector. However, the following workarounds may be used:
  1. Combine the necessary files outside of Tableau into a single file. Connect directly to this new combined file from within Tableau.
  2. Connect to files individually where applicable.
