Generate list of column names used in each join/formula for large workflow

Highlighted
Meteor

Hi All, 

I am trying to output a list of columns (Nmaes/Labels) used in join/ Formula tools in a large workflow. It is intended as part of the required documentation of the workflow.

Example: 

Column names :   Tool 

Equipment            Join(44)

Equipment            Join(2023)

ID                         Join(44)

Value                    Join(2023)

Name                   Formula (233)

etc. 

 

any pointers?

You can read the yxmd file and build a parser to find the data that you're looking for. If you display the xml as a user option you can learn the strict oof each of the tools in question. That might help when reading the whole file.
