Hi all

 

I was trying out the PDF input macro that is available in the gallery however I'm getting an error message as shown below.

Any idea to solve this one. I have gone through the documentation of this macro and installed the R package. I have attached the macro, WF and the inut pdf file used.

I didn't have R or Rstudio installed yet so I did it now. Yes I can install packages via RStudio

Hi @Adarsh_R3 

 

I've just tested on two different versions of Alteryx 2020.4 and 2021.3. On 2020.4 it ran with no issues however on 2021.3 it was generating similar errors to what you descibe.

 

To get it to work, I've followed this tutorial by @BenMoss. When I load up the R.exe as an administrator I can run the code

install.packages("Rcpp")

this updates the Rcpp library and then pdftools runs fine for me.

 

Let me know how you get on.

Hey @Adarsh_R3, @cgoodman3 is right that I think you need to update the packages due to the change in R version. There's more info on this thread here:
