Table tool column rules being incorrectly applied?

Baffled by this one, hopefully something obvious I am doing wrong.

 

I pass in this data to the Table:

And this is what comes out:

Questions are:

 

1) Why does some data disappear? e.g. under "K9" the first row used to be -12 and now is blank

2) Why is my column rule to turn negative numbers red not being applied consistently?

 

It seems like the Table has memory from previous runs where the data under the same column headings was different and is applying the formatting according to the old data - is that possible?

 

Any help greatly appreciated - example workflow attached.

 

Thanks

Hi Sophia

 

Did you get any further with this or still unable to reproduce the error?

 

Is it possible to speak to an Alteryx support representative directly or is this the best channel?

 

Thanks,

Has there been an update on this? I believe I am running into the same issue and can't find any other helpful documentation or community discussions.

 

Thanks,

hi dyamichael

 

I followed up a couple weeks ago as it's been nearly 6 months since first raised - got this response from Alteryx

 

Thanks for following up - unfortunately we don't have an ETA to provide, but we will be sure to let you know when a release is out that contains the fix.

Thanks John. I ran into the same issue in what I thought was a corrupted
table tool inside a batch macro after a version upgrade. I remade the table
tool and rules and it ran successfully when tested in the macro. It
produced the exact same formatting errors when running the app and then did
so when testing in the macro afterwards.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi @SophiaF 

 

Bumping this - it has been ~3 years since you all added this to your backlog; can you please share an update on this bug?

Bump again.  My workflow appears to be taking the _CurrentField_ to be 2 columns to the left.  I shifted my Unknown/Dynamic columns over so there was nothing on the left and reordered them in the table tool, and now the _CurrentField_ is looking 2 columns to the right instead of to itself.
