New data points not flowing through workflow

Number4

I have *Unknown enabled, and when I add a new data point, or rename something, it's not showing up down stream unless I run the workflow.

 

I've made no changes to my settings, and I'm not aware of this being an option outside of checking/unchecking the '*Unknown' box.

This is dependant on your workflow some tools such as the Transfrom Category will not pass the metadata downstream until you hit run.

It didn't behave this way before.  Also, I noticed that where it does appear down stream, it's not checked.  Again, with the Select Tool "*Unknown" enabled.

Hi @Number4 

 

If it's not the result of a Crosstab or other Transform tool, as @JosephSerpis suggested, the only other thing that could affect this is the Disable Auto Configure in user settings.

It might be worth checking, even you say your settings haven't changed.

 

If this doesn't solve the issue, try reproducing in a new workflow.  Either start from scratch with a new workflow, or copy your existing one and remove tools until the issue goes away.   If you do find a specific tool that's causing this behaviour, please post it here so we can all learn from your detective work
