A Tableau workbook file contains content that is formatted using XML-based specifications, and these Tableau workbook files can be created by users with the aid of the Tableau Desktop software. This program is also integrated with a set of functionalities that allows users to enter visual elements into these Tableau workbook files. Data encoding standards proprietary to Tableau Software, developer of the Tableau Desktop application, are used by this program to store these Tableau workbook files in the TWB format.

Tableau Desktop

Tableau Desktop

Tableau Desktop is a program used to produce graphics, reports and dashboards of any given data. The source can be in the form of a simple spreadsheet (Excel workbook), text files (.csv) or a database (SQL server or Oracle). Once information is entered into the program, it can display information in various graphical displays. Data can created in form of a chart, table, plot or a map. It also allows users to view, filter, sort, organize, calculate and summarize data. Data and results can be shared to any Tableau users or by copying the produced output into other programs like Microsoft office. Tableau Desktop works with Windows 7, XP, Vista, Server 2008/ 2003 and Microsoft Windows 8. A minimum system requirement of AMD Opteron or a Pentium 4 is a required with 250 MB of available disk space. Being a data visualization program, a 32-bit color depth is highly recommended for better graphic output.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .twb files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .twb. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
