How to delete .flat file that I received along with .txt file as an output.

Using Alteryx I received an output wherein which I got both .txt file and .flat file as an output. I would like to delete .flat file from the folder. How to create a separate container to delete just .flat file from the output folder?

Can you share your output configurations? I've output to txt files and never seen a flat file get generated unintentionally. 

 

This is possible using the run command tool, however.

Hello @Sunithaprdp,

 

Share workflow to understand if workflow has to create that file --- or we can change set up!

 

In general, for cleaning up memory, I would recommend using attached macro where you can just specify directory/file to be deleted.

 

Best Luck!
