Recently tableau gave the functionality of R connection in their release 8.1. I want to know if there is any way I can call an entire table created in R to tableau. Or a .rds object which contains the dataset into Tableau?

  • There is a tutorial on the Tableau website for this and a blog on r-bloggers which discuss. The tutorial has a number of comments and one of them (in early Dec I think) asks how to get an rds file in. You need to start Rserve and then execute a script on it to get your data.
