2.  In the ODBC Data Source Administrator window, select the Drivers tab.
3.  Look for any ODBC Driver for SQL Server to determine if multiple ODBC Driver versions are installed for SQL Server.  If more than one driver is present, uninstall all drivers related to the ODBC Sql Server.
4. Close Tableau Desktop and check the Task Manager to be sure that all instances of Tableau Desktop are closed.
5. Install the Version 17 of the ODBC SQL Server driver from the Microsoft website.


Multiple ODBC MS SQL Server drivers are present.  Multiple versions of the ODBC SQL Server drivers can be installed when Windows is upgraded from an older version.
