For Tableau Desktop, there's no built-in function to write back to database.
Current workaround is to use Extension API to write-back to a database. For more information refer to the blog below:

The function to write data back to database is not currently built-in for Tableau Desktop.
To voice your support for the future implementation of this function, please vote on the following idea on Tableau Community:
Write back to database in Tableau Desktop!
Alternatively, Tableau Prep Builder (2020.3.1 and later) has a function to export to database from the flow.
Please refer the following documents for more details:
