You would be able to attach a file to the tool using the regular input but the tool you would just enter in the # of files you want and then it would split the file into that number. For Example if I had a file with 100 records and I wanted 5 files then it would split the file up into 5 files with 25 records each. It should also keep the header on each file.
Hi @sasha_pugliese! Actually, this can already be done! Just follow these steps:
Input your file with an Input Data tool.
Drop in a Tile tool. Configure it with "Tile Method" = "Equal Records" and set "Number of Tiles" = the number of files you want.
Drop in and configure an Output Data tool to a location/file name you want.
In the Output Data tool check the "Take File/Table Name From Field" checkbox at the bottom. Leave the "Append Suffix to File/Table Name" option and select "Tile_Num" as the "Field Containing File Name or Part of File Name". I would uncheck "Keep Field in Output" so the Tile_Num column doesn't appear in your output.
You could get fancy with a Formula tool and create a new field that builds a unique file name based on Tile_Num so you aren't just appending a digit to the end of your file name.
A similar, alternative approach is described by @DanC in the Knowledge Base here. Hope this helps!
