Opening Published Workbook Using Tableau Desktop When Some Nested Projects Have Same Name

Published: 16 May 2019
Last Modified Date: 01 Jul 2019


When using Tableau Desktop to navigate to a published workbook in a child project that has the same name as its parent, the Open Workbook from Tableau Server dialog may show the workbook(s) in the parent project instead.

Additionally, when a child project has the same name as another project that is not its parent, the Open Workbook from Tableau Server dialog may display the contents of whichever of the two is selected first for that dialog session.
