Macro wont open. "Question tool load error, tool id missing associated question data"

Meteoroid

Need some help here.  This shouldn't happen:

Why tool ID '12'?  Seems arbitrary.

Sounds like the tool may have been corrupted and would of been no real reason why specifically tool id 12.

There is a bug in the Alteryx code.

 

I don't believe any of the answers given sufficiently address this problem. 

 

The workaround is to open the macro as a text file.  At the very bottom of that file there is a "Questions" section.  It is under "RuntimeProperties" and looks like:

Copy this text and paste before the closing </Questions> statement:

 

<Question>
<Type>Tab</Type>
<Description>Questions</Description>
<Name>Tab ([yourtoolidhere])</Name>
<ToolId value="[yourtoolidhere]" />
<Questions />
</Question>

 

Save your file and you should be able to load the macro.
