How to build a Word document or a PDF document using Alteryx

Hi,

 

Is there any way to build a Word document or a PDF document using Alteryx based on sets of pre-defined paragraphs that get placed in the document depending on some simple rules.

 

Thanks,

Hello,

 

It is entirely possible to produce a Word/PDF document.  Try using the Render tool to produce these types of outputs.  

 

In Alteryx V11.3 there is a new Visual Layout tool that will help you format the output of the PDF.  I recommend looking at the sample workflows under the 'presentation workflows' for help when using the reporting tools within Alteryx.

Hi Nick,

 

Thanks for your reply!!

 

I am using Alteryx 10.5. It would be great if you could share me the workflow with some example on generating PDF document.

Hello,

 

You have some example workflows in Alteryx as standard, Help ---> Sample Workflows --> Presentation Workflows.
