If there is no need to add filters prior to creating the new extract, click OK when the message appears. A new extract will be created without filters.
If the original extract included filters, and you would like to include the same filters on the new extract, add filters prior to editing the data connection:
- Prior to editing the connection, select Data > <data source name> > Extract > Remove, and then click OK.
- Edit the connection. For more information, see Connecting to Data and Editing Data Sources in Tableau Help.
- Select Data > <data source name> > Extract Data.
- In the Extract Data dialog box, add the desired filters, and then click Extract. For more information, see Creating an Extract in Tableau Help.
CauseWhen you edit a data connection, Tableau re-creates the extract. If you had filters applied to the extract, these filters will be removed.
The ability to select whether to keep, modify, or remove the filter, directly before extract is refreshed is not currently built into the product.
