I am relatively new to Alteryx. I tried to create a simple Analytic App with a File Browse Tool-->Action Tool-->Input Data Tool-->Browse Tool. But every time when I click "Finish" after selecting a Excel File and worksheet it will out a message "There Were No Output Files" in the App Results window.
File Browse Tool -- I selected the "Standard Database File Formats" option
Action Tool -- I selected the "Update Input Data Tool (Default)" option
I am not sure what I did wrong. I tried looking at it and searching through the forum with no avail.
Alteryx Apps are designed to present users with a very specific output, they aren't a development tool; thus when you are developing an Alteryx application you must have some sort of output (and a browse does not count as an output).
You would need to use an 'output data' tool to write your datastream to a file; when you have done this and you run your app, this file will then be presented for the user to open.
