Thanks to Tableau and DV working closely together, we now have a quick fix for the issues with DV ODBC and newer Tableau versions (https://support.datavirtuality.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360038669331-ODBC-Connection-issues-with-newer-Tableau-Desktop-versions)
In order to not have to use the workaround described in the above post, please follow these steps on Windows:
- Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator on Windows
- Double click on your DV Data Source
- Click the Datasource button
- Completely remove the entry "dd_;" from SysTablePrefixes
- OK and Save
With these steps, it should not be necessary to use the above workaround. We will make this setting a default for our future ODBC drivers.
We would be very happy about feedback on how this solution works for you.
