How to open a workbook on a Sharepoint server in Tableau Reader.


  • Tableau Reader
  • Sharepoint


Download from Sharepoint.
  1. Navigate to the workbook on Sharepoint.
  2. Click on the workbook link and choose Save file.
  3. Choose the desired local save location.
  4. Open the workbook (.twbx) as usual from the local location.


Additional Information

You cannot open a regular workbook (.twb) in Tableau Reader because .twb files make a live connection to data whenever they are opened.
