Tableau Connector for Sage Business Cloud Accounting

Build 22.0.8342


General Changes

  • Support for additional localizations in the Windows and Mac packages. Both setups now support all the languages that Tableau supports as of their 2022.2 release.
  • We now support handling the keyword "COLLATE" as standard function name as well.
  • Updated connection dialogs to use advanced configuration information provided by drivers. This makes use of the same information as new dialogs in other editions (like ODBC) to display only the most relevant connection properties.
  • Legacy connectors have been simplified to look more like Tableau JDBC dialogs. Legacy connectors target older Tableau versions which do not support rich connection dialogs like the modern connectors do. Most connectors cannot fit within these limitations.
  • Added support for the STRING_SPLIT table-valued function in the CROSS APPLY clause.
  • Add the KeySeq column to the sys_foreignkeys table.
  • Add the new sys_primarykeys system table.
  • Updated the Literal Function Names for relative date/datetime functions. Previously relative date/datetime functions resolved to a different value when used in the projection vs te predicate. Ie: SELECT LAST_MONTH() AS lm, Col FROM Table WHERE Col > LAST_MONTH(). Formerly the two LAST_MONTH() methods would resolve to different datetimes. Now they will match.
  • As a replacement for the previous behavior, the relative date/datetime functions in the criteria may have an 'L' appended to them. Ie: WHERE col > L_LAST_MONTH(). This will continue to resolve to the same values that previously were calculated in the criteria. Note that the "L_" prefix will only work in the predicate - it not available for the projection.
  • Added the TCP Logging Module for the logging information happening on the TCP wire protocol. The transport bytes that are incoming and ongoing will be logged at verbosity=5.
  • Added support for handling client side formulas during insert / update. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1 = Concat(Col1, " - ", Col2) WHERE Col2 LIKE 'A%'
  • Updated how display sizes are determined for varchar primary key and foreign key columns so they will match the reported length of the column.
  • Non-conditional updates between two columns is now available to all drivers. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1=Col2

  • Reduced the length to 255 for varchar primary key and foreign key columns.
  • Updated implicit and metadata caching to improve performance and support for multiple connections. Old metadata caches are not compatible - you would need to generate new metadata caches if you are currently using CacheMetadata.
  • Updated index naming convention to avoid duplicates
  • Updated and standardized Getting Started connection help.
  • Added the Advanced Features section to the help of all drivers.
  • Categorized connection property listings in the help for all editions.
  • Improved connection dialog configuration experience for a number of drivers.
