Drawing on this tradition, today’s article presents an Excel workbook emulating the Tableau Oktoberfest Dashboard. The technique behind this bluff is a very clever approach my blogging colleague Jordan Goldmeier published in several articles over at his Option Explicit VBA Blog.
Stealing Jordan’s idea, today’s post shows how to recreate the Oktoberfest Beer Price Tableau dashboard with Microsoft Excel, as always including the Excel workbook for free download.
