File Browse, R Tool and the Slash Direction

Alteryx Certified Partner

Hiya Team,


I'm trying to build an app with the R tool.  I want to use the "File Browse' tool. The problem I'm having is that the R tool using Filepaths using forward slashes (/) while the FileBrowse Tool returns backslashes (\) has anyone figured out a way around this issue?
