SP Files Inputs does not recognize a .yxdb file as valid

I'm using a SP Files Input tool to try to read in a .yxdb file, but I'm getting the following warning which is causing errors further down the line in my workflow.  "Warning: SharePoint Files Input (34): 'Database.yxdb' is not a valid yxdb file."  Can someone help me please?

Hi @oracleoftemple 

 

The tool should support yxdb. Can you confirm:

  1. What version of alteryx & the tool you are using
  2. Does the yxdb file work in a normal input tool? That would rule out some file corruption issue.

I'm using 2021.4, and it works fine when I use a normal Input tool.

Got it, I just tried and it works for me, but I'm on 2022.1 (using v2.1.0 of the sharepoint tools). Unfortunately I don't work with this tool too much but maybe someone else has run into this before.
