I'm trying to find a simple way to select between two input files in my workflow. The two files are identical except for time period. One is "current" and the other is "month-end previous month." I'd like to use the same workflow on each. Sometimes I want the outputs based on today, and sometimes based on last month. The file names and paths will be static. Ideally, I'd just like to have a menu to select between the two inputs. I'm sure this is possible, but I'm very new to Alteryx so I'd appreciate any suggestions.
First, I had to point to files on my machine, so I made these updates.
Then I save and close the app and run it by double-clicking the file. It opens, I choose current, and it runs yielding the default, previous (not current file). I must be doing something else wrong. I posted my version in case you can determine my issue that way.
See attached. I didn't have your original input file so I modified the Input tool to start at row 1 (was set to row 3). Modified my current and previous Excels to have some sort of dummy user data so the Summarize will work and made sure that the Action tool was set to the File - Value attribute. This works for me and outputs 2 browse results as expected.
