- Cross database join
ResolutionDeselect "Include External Files" when publishing the joined data.
- Go to Server > Publish Workbook.
- Uncheck the box next to "Include external files."
- Select Publish.
CauseBecause the dataset is based off of a subset of the Excel file, the "Include external files" option does not include a complete Excel file. If the external files are not included (but are on a shared location for example) when the dataset is refreshed, Tableau reaches out to the location of the Excel file for the extract refresh.
