Hi Michal,

 

Thanks for your reply. However I don't think this will work. Attaching the picture of my workflow. I have altogether three files and I want to check report date = today for the one highlighted. For the below example the false part as well as true part will get executed. Hence in my workflow if I incorporate this it will start executing with null data if the report date is not equal to todays date and get it published in Tableau server as I am creating a tde.

Not sure I understand what you mean or what the challenge is. That report date is null? Can you sort it out using a Message or Test tool? To give you an error when that happens?
