Opening 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 TWBX files.

What is a TWBX file?

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 Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, Tableau
Online, Tableau Reader and Tableau Public. TWBX files are normally used in these applications to help users in their information
gathering and analysis 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 workbook created by the user using the Tableau Desktop
program, plus it also includes other workbook files embedded by the user into the Tableau packaged workbook. XML-based specifications
are used to create .twbx files.


Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
