Hi all, my purpose is to output multiple sheets into a single excel file with complex layout. As shown above, there are lost of tables, text boxes and other elements in each sheet; thus, "group" option is not valid in both Layout tool and Render tool. If the Render tool can work like Output tool to specify sheet name for storing data, this problem would be solved. I have stuck here for a long time. Is there any suggestion to kick this issue out?
Hi LordNeilord, I have tired your solution on my workflow. It works!!!!!! Your sample solution is really helpful! However I get a small issue (not important at all), when I use Layout -> Vertical with Section Breaks.
In your example, the sheet names is the same as the value of "Type". In my workflow, I also add a "Type" field in my each sub-workflow for section break and the value of my "Type" is simple strings like "ASP" and "AVP", but the sheet names are still "sheet1", "sheet2" and etc. in the output file. How can I force Alteryx to use the value of "Type" as sheet names?
I've run your solution and the sheetnames are labelled with the values in the Type field but I have no idea how that happened. I cannot replicate with my own workflow although I have copied all the same tools as in yours (table, layout, formula, union, layout, render).
Can you explain what you did to output the fieldnames to the values in the Type field?
Diabolic thanks for posting your question, since I had the same exact one for my use case testing for Alteryx. LordNeilLord thanks for answering and also providing your sample workflow.
I was able to re-create the workflow to match my criteria, but I still have some problems with truncated data. For some reason even if I make the Render tool "Report Style" as Landscape orientation my data is truncated to almost unreadable extent.
Any ideas how to get the data to not be truncated and to be in the original length?
