A few suggestions that I think can improve the Sharepoint Files Output Tool:
@Joe_Lipski These are some great ideas! I just submitted an idea to add a "Keep Field in Output" checkbox like the standard Output Data tool that you might find interesting.

@Joe_Lipski thanks for your submittal Joe. I am troubleshooting the same error you show in bullet point #3.
Can you clarify what causes that in your scenario?
Hi @davidhe, I'm now continuously getting that error in #3, so not sure if i ever found a solution back in Feb.
I'm probably missing something glaringly obvious!
@Joe_Lipski it sounds like the solution is to create a dummy/placeholder file of the same file type in the desired directory PRIOR to writing.
I guess with no file to compare extensions the default behavior is to error.
I was running into the same error. But managed to get it working. I followed the steps from this link: https://help.alteryx.com/20221/designer/sharepoint-output-tool
Point #3 second sentence - When adding a new file name, use the extension in the name. Retrospectively changing the extension within the file path doesn't work and still throws an error. So re choose your folder path and enter the name + ".xslx" for example "new_file.xlsx" in the first entry. this then matches the selection you choose within the configure file inputs and your workflow should run error free
