Error when saving workflow with In-DB tools to Alteryx Gallery

Alteryx Partner

@MarqueeCrew - Yes. I have three other flows that are scheduled in the gallery and run the exact same query. The only difference is: (1) They are referencing different tables (2) They are normal input tools.

@MarqueeCrew - Posting a screenshot of a successful run on the flow locally along with the query that I'm running in the Connect In-DB tool.


Select * From database.schema.table_name

After a call with @KevinP I was able to resolve the second issue by creating an In-DB Connection with a SQL Server Ole DB driver, replacing the SQL Server ODBC driver. In order to get this driver to work I had to make these few configurations:

  1. Integrated Security: Open this prompt and then close it (this is effectively an "acknowledgment" of this setting in Alteryx)
  2. Persist Security: Open this prompt and set it to "True"


Kevin also offered a solution that replaced the need for the In-DB tools altogether. He suggested using the regular input data tool and writing the following optimized query which returns the last RecordID:


Select Top 1 RecordID From Database Order By RecordID Desc

This solution, in particular, was a great reminder to leverage SQL and experiment with queries if the tools begin to pile up. Thanks for your assistance, Kevin!
