Help with application

Atom

Hello,

I am new to Alteryx, this is my first application and I need some help please.  It's a pretty simple app that should take input from a text input and a drop down and insert it into a file.   I have the drop down working and can put data into the text window.  But thats as far as it gos.  The file never gets updated.  I have attached my app, any help would be great.

Hi @1010789 ,

 

I assume you want to update the value of the Route with whatever is entered into INCAWRD3? If yes, then the Action tool connected to INCAWRD3 should be updated to Update Cell - Update row 1 and column 2 -

What I am trying to do is..  Each time a user selects a route from the drop down and enters and amount in the text box.  I want to insert a row in the table with the drop down populating the "name" field and the text box populating the "value" field.

@1010789 ,

 

You have your join set to by Record Position - it should Join by Specific Fields = ROUTE (left) and NAME (right).

Also, both Action tools needed to be Update Cell -

Now it works -

Attached is the app with the changes.
