Results tab limits string length

Hi,

Alteryx limits the string length shown in the Results tab. How can this behaviour be avoided so we could see the full string?

 

My string size is set to the the maximum allowed by the V_WString =1073741823

If you use the Browse tool the string will not be truncated.

The results tab limits the initial view to 256 characters, if you want to see anything beyond this you will need to add a browse tool.

Yes, but the idea is to pass that behaviour through the workflow.

 

How do you pass the results of the Browse tool ?

The workflow will be able to handle the such length, don't worry. The Browse tool just give you the full visibility of the data at that stage.

The full string in the cell is still there and will be passed further into your workflow, Alteryx is only limiting the "view". The full text string will be passed through downstream

Hi @jcardso

 

Use the browse tool > select the cell you want to see the data/ comments for > Click on Cell Viewer (as highlighted below). You should be able to see the complete text.

I hope this helps.
