CData Tableau Connector for Access
The CData Tableau Connector for Access offers self-service integration with Tableau. The connector facilitates live access to Access data in Tableau using the connection window. The connector also provides direct querying to visualize and analyze Access data.
Note that you must have Tableau 2020.3 or greater installed as well as an up-to-date version of Java. For older versions of Tableau, the CData ODBC Driver for Access or the CData JDBC Driver for Access can serve as an alternative means of connecting to Access data in Tableau.
Once a connection has been configured, see Getting Data to set up a data source that offers live connectivity to Access.
Using the Connector
Refer to Visualizing Data to create and work with Tableau visualizations.
See Defining Custom Views to construct virtual tables whose contents are determined by a pre-configured query, which will then be discovered among existing table metadata.
Connection String Options
The Connection properties describe the various options that can be used to establish a connection.
