Fix: Tableau – Cannot Save Changes to The File
If you attempt to Print to PDF a Tableau report, you may receive an error message that prevents you saving any edits made. In this example, you export a PDF, it opens after selecting view PDF file after printing, and you decide to make additional edits. After making the edits, you print to PDF and receive a prompt about the same file name existing, do you want to overwrite. When you click yes, you experience the error message.
- Close the existing Tableau PDF report first before trying to save a new copy of the report. The error message is confusing since it does not tell you the other report with the same name is still open.
