Is there a method that would provide the name/type of the tool(s) being used, specific information like join or left out join the fields they are joined on, what fields are being passed on to the next tool... what fields are falling out (deselected).
load alteryx workflow as xml is where I am getting the error.
I have this exactly
"file type: csv
uncheck 1st row contains headers"
I can see Field1 populated in the Input tool.
"The idea is that you load the xml file into a column called Field1"
The error I described is in the macro parse tool right after that Input tool.
Just the suggestion to load the workflow file itself has helped me tremendously.... never even thought to do it. Regardless of if I can get this to work, your suggestion has already opened up my potentials.
I re downloaded your 3 attachments, put the Parser in a macro file
added my yxmd to load alteryx workflow as xml
set the setting per your instruction
Bam! 4 columns of xml-less love.
Of course after the first 7 attempts & failures I spent a fair amount of time starring at the data from an excel output to digest the structure.
This gets me closer to what I want to achieve as an end result, which is basically a left to right tabular version of the workflow in the order it runs so I can identify what ties to what, how, fields used, fields created, fields changed, etc etc etc.
Again... thanks you for sticking with me as long as you did. I realize your time is valuable.
