To date, I have been uploading excel spreadsheets to Alteryx. I have oftentimes made changes to the excel spreadsheet in excel, saved the file, and re-run the Alteryx workflow. I generally don't have any issues doing this and Alteryx recognises the changes to the document.
Yesterday however, Alteryx appeared to not recognize my changes to the document. The schema was the same, however the numbers were different. When I did a save-as and changed the file name, Alteryx recognised the changes.
My question is: Do I have to change the name of the file every time I make changes to it? Why did Alteryx not recognise my changes until i changed the file name?
@bwat2435, This is not normal behavior for the tool. You do not need to re-save as another name for Alteryx to read files. As ParadoxuM mentioned there may have been a caching issue. Restarting Alteryx may resolve that issue, but if it persists please reach out to our Support team to troubleshoot.
