Hello,

I'm trying to connect a Directory with .txt files (same schemas) to a Dynamic Input Tool.
And i need help to configure the Dynamic Input Tool.

Have you tried clicking once on the Dynamic Input tool and clicking "Open Example". There are some good examples of how to configure it when attached to a directory tool there.

Hey @BautistaC888 !

 

Don't know if you're using dynamic tool just to can input many .txt files at the same time only, but if yes, you can do it using the Input tool as well.

 

In input tool, instead of point the entire path of one .txt file, you can replace the file name only by the character *, that will mean to alteryx as "everything".

 

E.g:

 

Instead of use:  D:\Alteryx\example.txt

Use: D:\Alteryx\*.txt

 

That will be enough to your input tool read all .txt files at once.

 

Hope that helps!

í had the same issue and I did try using the wild card option but I see that not all files are read, some files are missing.
