Filter from SQL table


Hi community,

I just started using Alteryx, and I am stuck trying to filter an Excel file based a column coming from SQL table. Have anyone had any experience with this? I appreciate for all the help I can get. Thank you!

Hey @Nick278


You could join your excel sheet to your SQL table and anything that comes out of the "J" will the items that match your SQL table.


If you can provide an example it will be easier to help you


You can do this by joining the column from the SQL table to the Excel file. The 'J' output will contain only the values that are found in your SQL table. Before you do the join, make sure you remove any duplicate values from the column in your SQL table by doing a Summarize or using the Unique tool.


Thank you for both of your answers! I will try this
