ResolutionIn Tableau Desktop, select Data > New Data Source.
Navigate to your Excel or text file, click the drop-down arrow on Open, and select Open with Legacy Connection.
CauseThe current Tableau Excel connector only permits the "=" join operator. To use other operators, you must use the legacy JET engine based connection.
Note: Starting in Tableau 2019.1, you can no longer create a new Legacy Excel or Text connection. Existing workbooks created with these legacy connections will continue to work until 2019.2, when all support for legacy connections will be removed. See the Legacy Connection Alternatives document in Tableau Community for alternatives to using the legacy connection.
