Export output to a database


Hi all,


Has anyone push the output of your flow to an external database like Access or Tableu for further use there? I have been using Alteryx for a while and so far we use to export the output in excel to then use it in Tableau or Access.


Our idea is to push the output so we avoid to export it first in excel.


Hope someone have done this and could provide some advice.

Hi @JorgeVazquez,

Yes, MS Access and Table Data Extract (.tde) are output options. Just output to file, and select the file type from the list.

Were you looking for something else?

Hope that helps!



Hi @JohnJPS,

Thank you for your answer.


This helps of course. I was also thinking in something like an automate connection between, for instance, alteryx and Tableau. Maybe the extract going directly to Tableau withou the need of creating an output file. Do you know if that is possible?


Thank you.
