Dynamic Input Not Producing Results

I have a strange issue wherein a valid file path is being sent to a Dynamic Input tool from a custom tool, but nothing comes out and there are no errors.  I tried a simple text input with the same path going into a Dynamic Input and it worked perfectly.  I also created a macro to accept the path from my custom tool and update a standard input tool, but that didn't work either.  What is the trick to getting a Dynamic Input/macro input to read a path string from a custom tool?

 

Thanks.

Hey Rick! 

 

Can I see an example of the path that is being pushed to the dynamic input tool? 

 

Also a weird side question, are you running this on the desktop or server/gallery?

Hi Treyson,

 

Here is the path I'm passing in:  \\<servername>\<username>\My Documents\Test Integration Files\Sample - Superstore Sales (Excel).xls|Orders$

 

The results from text input/custom input are as follows (the path and all settings are exactly the same):

Figured it out.  I had created a second output stream in my tool, but neglected to close the second output helper object after passing all of the records through it.
