I ran into an error which says "the field schema for the output changed between iterations” when I was running a macro to process two excel files. The structure and field types seem to be same between these two, and the only difference is the fiscal year (FY17 vs. FY18). I'm not sure why it says Field schema changed. I've attached the Alteryx workflows and source files - could someone take a look and let me know what went wrong? Thanks in advance!
Thanks for your prompt response, and really appreciate your help! I was able to change the properties and re-run the macro, however, there is only one data output for some reason (see screenshot below). It does not seem to make sense cause I'd expect there would be at least thousands of data output. Did you happen to know what the issue might be? Thank you!

i do want to point out that you don't necessarily need to do step 2 (don't need to select the macro output tool) - just go to Interface designer, then click on cog to change the output mode to Auto Configure by Name. I tested @jasperlch's solution and it worked for me as stated, so i've marked it as the answer.

This problem has occured when loading several files within a macro and one or more of them contained only the header row and no data. I have tried a number of permutations of input / dynamic input / dynamic rename tools but I have not yet figured out how to fix the problem.
I am operating under Version 2022.1.1.42590, and getting to the Properties panel wasn't obvious. In case anyone else is wondering: To get to the properties option to fix the "schema mix-match problem" I had to first make sure the Interface Designer is active: View> Select: Interface Designer (Ctrl+Alt+D) > Click on the Properties Icon > Update the Output Mode to 'Auto Configure by Name'.
