You’ll learn how to prepare, control, and clean up data before you start working with it to ensure you get the most out of your analyses. You’ll explore how to connect to a desktop source and use single and multiple tables to extract data into Tableau’s data engine, as well as how to connect to a Microsoft SQL Server database.
