How to create a bat script and run the same in alteryx

Asteroid

Hi ,

 

I want to move the input file from one folder to another once the workflow is completed. How do I implement the same in apteryx.

 

Regards,

To write batch files, I configure an Output tool as a csv output, but then update the output path from my workflow with the .bat extension. A Run Command tool can be used to execute the batch file that you have just written. I would also suggest using a Block Until Done tool before your Run Command to make sure everything upstream from that tool is complete before executing the batch file. 

 

If the file you are copying is a format that Alteryx supports, you could open the file, update the location, and re-save it in the same workflow much easier than running batch files.
