I just finished my first alteryx workflow today. I needed a solution that:
- Extracted pdf data (used xpdf for the actual conversion to txt, but then alteryx to parse and clean)
- Clean the extracted data
- Compare the clean data to what was being saved on server
- Upload only new data to the server
- Save a backup locally
Everything worked liked a charm!
I'm sure there are a hundred and three ways for me to clean up the workflow, but for now I'm happy this works. Bundled this all up in a batch file and now just have to download a monthly pdf and run the .bat and I'm done. I'm looking forward to working more with alteryx and streamlining my data operations!
With that in mind - what are your go-to resources for new learners here?
