Alteryx isn't reading in my excel file properly

Highlighted

Trying to import an excel file with around 700 rows, 10 columns. Instead, alteryx reads in 350 different fields, and only 5 rows. Any ideas?

Your excel file might have null values in a lot of cells. Try specifying a cell range in the input data tool in the file path and name box

 

c:\folder name\filename.xlsx|||Sheet1$A1:J

 

This will load data from the first 10 columns only.

 

Can't really comment on the 5 rows without seeing your input file.

Hi @AkisM ,,

 

Could you please share a snaposhot of your file ,so that we can help you better. 

 

You could also see if you are having the right sheet selected and the options wherein you can implement @DavidP 's solution as well as make sure to tick the box which says first row has headers to make sure you capture all the headers correctly. 

 

Hope this helps.
