Create a Chart from Excel Data in Tableau

Last month, I wrote about Tableau dashboards, and my first experiences with creating a Tableau workbook from Excel data. In this post, I’ve included another sample dashboard, where you can experiment with the user controls. Select one or more days of the week, or highlight a sales representative.
Also, there’s a short video, that shows how quick and easy it is to connect to data in Excel, and create a chart.
First, here’s the dashboard, that focuses on Parts sales for each sales representative. You can see the sales amounts per day of the week, average price compared to quantity sold, and the top three sales reps for parts.
