Output of Text to Column

Vis

To view the output of an excel data that is formatted using Text to Columns tool, I connected the Output Data tool to it. However, after running the workflow, I constantly get error as 'Cannot access the folder'.

 

What is wrong with my flow?

Hi Mbarone,

 

Thank you for responding to my query. I found the mistake I made. I didn't specify a location for the output file to be saved. That's why it was showing the error.

 

Thanks a lot 🙂

I have a doubt to ask. What is the difference between Output tool & Browse tool?

@Vis 

 

Output tool write to a file.

 

Brows tool is only for viewing data it disappears once you close designer.

 

Hope this helps🙂

Hi @Vis. It looks like you were able to solve your questions. This is perfect. However, I am moving your post to the Designer Discussions board which is the best place to ask questions so other users can also use the thread to help with their own questions.

@Vis, just for reference, I recommend taking a look in our Tool Mastery Index to dig into some of our most popular tools like the Output and Browse😉
