Extract query from Input

Hello everyone,

 

I need to extract a query from an Input tool linked to a OleDb database. 

 

The problem is that I don't have the connection to that database anymore, so Alteryx won't let me open the Input tool and check the query. 

 

Is there a way to bypass the error and see the query? I know it's in there since I can see the preview

Thanks for the help!

Open your Alteryx workflow in a text editior such as Notepad++ and seach for "Select Distinct"

One other option would be to get it from the XML.

 

If you go to User Settings there is an option under advanced to Display XML in Properties window.

 

Then you can see the query in there.
