      If you want to create an ODBC logfile from Tableau, you'll find the required steps below:

      • Create a copy of your Tableau workbook
      • Open your Tableau workbook copy with a text-editor (the format is XML)

      Find your datasource and edit the connection class:

      <workbook>
        <datasources>
          <datasource caption='your_datasource_name' ...>
            <connection class='exasolution' odbc-connect-string-extras='' port='8563' schema='YOURSCHEMA' server='192.168.10.11..22:8563'...>
      

      now modify odbc-connect-string-extras

            <connection class='exasolution' odbc-connect-string-extras='EXALOGFILE=D:\logfiles\TableauODBC.log;LOGMODE=DebugComm' port='8563' schema='YOURSCHEMA' server='192.168.10.11..22:8563' ...>
      

      For all ODBC logfile options, please refer to the user manual

      Now open this workbook again with Tableau and do everything you want to have within the odbc logfile.
