Dynamically rename output files with the Table/Render tool


Hi everyone,


One of the great features of the Output tool is the option to take a file name from a field.

In order to update the filename, you select the option "Change entire file path".

I would like to combine this option with the Table/Render tool and format my data before I turn it into an Excel file.

However, I can't seem to find the "Change entire file path" option or something alike in the Render tool.

Does anyone have a solution for this?


Thanks in advance.

Hey @P_Schenk


In the render tool you can use the function "Group Data into separate reports" in which you can use the option "replacing entire path with group"




Thank you so much LordNeilLord!!!


Originally I had no field to group on but thanks to your comment and printscreen I was able to succeed.



Are you able to hide the filepath from the table when you output this?
