How to open TWBX files
Did your computer fail to open a TWBX file? We explain what TWBX files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.
What is a TWBX file?
TWBX files are Tableau Packaged Workbook files, which you can read more about below.
The TWBX file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a TWBX opener may not be able to open all kinds of TWBX files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
Tableau Packaged Workbook
The .twbx file extension is associated with packaged document/data files created using the Tableau software package. TWBX is a proprietary file type that is specific to Tableau. The Tableau software package consists of Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, Tableau Online, Tableau Reader, and Tableau Public. TWBX files are normally used in these applications to help users with their information gathering and analyzing of various business-related aspects.
A normal workbook file is different from a packaged workbook. A normal Tableau workbook file is affixed with .twb. .twbx, on the other hand, is used in typical Tableau "packaged" workbook files. Moreover, a workbook file may consist of only one document, but a packaged workbook should contain at least 2 documents. A TWBX file contains a workbook created by the user using the Tableau Desktop program. It also includes other workbook files embedded by the user into the Tableau packaged workbook. XML-based specifications are used to create .twbx files.
