Issue

When attempting to configure Incremental Refreshes for an extract stored in Multiple Tables, the option to select Incremental Refreshes (or "Number of Rows") is grayed out.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Workaround 1:

The current workaround for this would be to create, store, and refresh each extract separately, then join or blend them together in the same workbook to get all the data in one place.

Workaround 2:

Alternatively, store the extract as a single table.
 

Cause

The ability to create incremental refreshes with an extract stored in multiple tables is not currently built into the product.
