Batch Macro reading in multiple files - question

Hey y'all,

 

I've created a batch macro that is supposed to read all of my files from a Directory Tool, but it only works when I put a Browse Tool after it. See the pictures below:

1. Workflow with the Browse Tool:

2. Workflow without the Browse Tool:

My batch macro:

I wanted to know why there is a difference between the 2 workflows. I'm using Alteryx 2021.4.

 

Best,

Chris

Hi @itschriswei 

 

If there is no tool after a batch macro only the first set of data gets processed. This is expected behavior.
