Hi Community!

 

I've faced some issue, with the pdf input tool.

Previously it worked, but i've updated to the newest alteryx version (2021.3), and it gives me an error msg that the pdf input tool doesn't works with this version.

This is the tool:

I've followed the steps what are in this video, but nothing chan

How should i contact with this issue?

 

Thanks in advance,

Pulling data from a PDF is super fun (said no one, ever). In this video, I'll do a quick demo of the install process for The Information Lab's PDF Input too...

Can you share what the error message is? Depending on what version of Alteryx you’ve updated from there might be a change in the version of R which could potentially cause the issue.

@Kucsi I have exported the tool within a workflow. Can you try to open it and see if you can access the macro?

@Kucsi I found a previous link whereby updating your R packages should solve the error you were having originally:

Thanks! It worked!

 

Just a side note: when i've deleted rcpp folder, the r.exe couldn't find it, so i reinstalled the whole alteryx, and left the rcpp folder as it was, and updated with R, then it worked.

 

Appriciate your help!
