The Tableau Destination Component is an SSIS Data Flow Component for loading data into a Tableau Data Extract (TDE) file. The configuration parameters are provided in the standard data flow destination component dialog.
Starting in Tableau 10.5 to use the component for hyper format files, you will need to download the Tableau Extract API 2.0 package (for 64bit). This newer package from Tableau only support 64bit machines.
Once you have downloaded the package, follow these steps to deploy it:
- Extract the contents of the package into a convenient folder.
- Create a sub-folder named TDE64 in the COZYROC 32bit installation folder. The default installation folder is: C:\Program Files (x86)\COZYROC\SSIS.
- Copy the contents of the bin sub-folder that was extracted in step 1 into the TDE64 folder.
- Next you will need to add another path to your systems environment variable for the variable named PATH with the following value: "C:\Program Files (x86)\CozyRoc\SSIS\TDE64\hyper". This will point to the .exe that were copied with the hyper folder when you copied files over for TDE64 folder.
