Download Views or Workbooks

  1. At the top of a view, click Download.

  2. Select one of the following options. (The available formats depend on your Tableau Server permissions.)

    • Image: Downloads an image of the view in .png format.

    • Data: Opens a new tab in the browser window and displays the view's data in summary and detail. You can then download the data as a comma-separated value (.csv) file.

    • Crosstab: Downloads the view as a .csv file you can open in Microsoft Excel.

    • PDF: Downloads a PDF of selected sheets. Under Content, select the part of the workbook you want to download. Then, under Sheets to Download, select specific sheets. (Hold down Ctrl to select multiple sheets.)

      Note: If you're downloading a dashboard to PDF format, web page objects aren't included.

    • Tableau Workbook: Downloads a workbook you can open with Tableau Desktop. As an alternative, you can select Server > Open Workbook in Tableau Desktop. This option is available only if you've been given the Download/Save permission by the author of the workbook or an administrator.

Note: Downloading extremely large amounts of data can affect server performance and might not complete successfully. If you encounter these issues, try exporting the data directly from the underlying data source.
