Blob Input Blob Output tool- Issue

Hello great people:

In a workflow, I have used Blob Input and Blob Output tool for storing a pre-formated .xls template. In the Output of the workflow, I am getting the result and everything from the template except the color.  

How can I fix it? Appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

Are you able to upload the workflow and Excel at all?

Unfortunately no. :(  I can give ScreenShots though.

I've just done a quick test with a really simple Excel file with some colour and it is retained (see attached).

So could well be specific to your template unfortunately.

@Kinetic_analytics @Make sure the blob output tool writing first, I mean the blob output should connect to the Block Until Done first output anchor

Quick Question :

In the Blob Output tool configuration time, Do I need to select a blank Output template? Thanks

The issue is happening on at Output tool. I have applied Block until done, I could see a black output template there. When I use the Output tool then I do not see the gridlines and color. The Alteryx Designer version is 2021.2.1.35394.

 

Thanks
