Outputting a Render file through file browse tool


Hi All,


I am using render tool in order to get two output files within the same excel. However, Render tool asks for me to mention the file name.

I used a interface file brose tool on top of the render name so that when used as an app i can manually give the file name.

Even though i run the app, the file name is generated with the file name entered in the render tool.


Is there any configuration in the file browse or render which i can use to work around this?

Hi @rajatjain1 


Could you share a screenshot with this app? With the configuration of the interface tools and the render tool?

First, are you running the app from the magic wand?

Second, are you choosing to replace a specific string in the Action Tool?





@rajatjain1 You want to make sure that you are using the action tool to update the render tool. You want to make sure that the action tool is updating the actual file in the render tool. Hope that helps.
