I often use the Input Data Tool to input multiple like files from a directory using the * before the file extension, like this:
I have a directory with 41 CSV files and the Input Data Tool is only bringing in two of them. This has happened to me before. I usually have a Filename field added on Input and then run a summary to make sure all files came in.
Anyone have thoughts on why this happens and how to solve it?
Is there a better way to bring in multiple like files into a flow?
No. That just provides the file name. I need to know which files have different fields so I can group them accordingly.
In other words, I want Alteryx to tell me which files are causing the problem with bulk import so I can isolate them and not have to open every single one to figure out which ones have different fields/headers.
