@NBart let me know how that goes ;-) Make sure you read the install part in that post thoroughly. It was a bit of a rollercoaster right to install everything correctly but worked like a charm at the end of the day.

Hi, I have tried to run your workflow, it doesn't get to write out the result to Alteryx, could you please share the workflow in zip? 

 

Thanks,

Yonger

@Yonger You should be good with the original workflow. Working so far for others. If the tool is not working, there is probably a different reason for it than missing code.


Are you getting any error messages? If you try to run the workflow once and then open the Python Code tool and hit the RUN button from the Jupyter notebook, are you getting are results?

Hi,

I have problems installing pdfminer python packages as I have no Internet on my work laptop. Please assist.

Thanks!

@domo_arigatoo we really need to have all the packages in place so you will need to download them on some other machine.

Packages are stored in your Alteryx install folder path in  \alteryx\bin\miniconda3\pythontool_env\lib\site-packages

The package can be downloaded on another machine and then just copy pasted using some network drive/ usb stick or something.

Thanks, @DavidM. I managed to resolve this issue by downloading all relevant Python packages to an Internet laptop and transferring and installing these packages to my non-internet laptop. Thanks for your workflow. I'm now able to convert all of my pdf files to text files! Yeah!
