Appending to Existing Excel Tab - Error "Could not generate a unique name for field <F4>..

Hello Community,

 

I'm appending a table from my workflow into an existing Excel file. The excel tab I'm appending to has pre-existing format and formulas. However, the excel tab has appropriate number of columns and column header names to receive my workflow table. I need the workflow table read into cell A3 to start.

 

Anyways, after running, I received this error "Could not generate a unique name for field <F4>, number 6517, after attempting 999 generated names".

 

I'm unsure of the nature of the error. I new to Alteryx, so please forgive my ignorance.

Hello @barowsr


Are you able to upload a copy of your workflow with some sample dummy data?

This will help to see how your workflow is running and allow the Community to troubleshoot further.
Thanks!

Attached a zip file. Included is the workflow, the template excel file I'd like to output my work flow in, and the two source data excel files.
