Error "undefined binding" Refreshing Workbooks or Extracts in Tableau Online
Published: 15 May 2019 Last Modified Date: 07 Sep 2020
When refreshing workbooks or extracts in Tableau Online, the following error occurs:
Existing extract including joins
Make sure that all columns needed for joining data are available in the underlying data source
The data necessary to join is unavailable in the data source
Existing extracts based on joins break with this error when one of the fields used to join is not available in the data source. The issue is most common for extracts based on files (txt, csv, Excel, Google Sheets, ...) because users can inadvertently break the extract by renaming columns or reformatting the file.
