Selecting files from a directory through the Gallery

Is it possible to update the directory tool using a file browser tool? I'm trying to find a way to snip off the filename and use the rest to update the directories path?

 

Thanks,

Brad

@brad_j_crep I think you can use the FileGetDir function in an action tool to accomplish that:

Hi,


This is accomplishable for local apps, but doesn't work with the Alteryx Gallery.


If you configure your Action tool to be "update value with Formula", you can use the following formula:

FileGetDir([#1])

Hi,

Could you explain how to make it work with the Alteryx Gallery?

Is that the case for the both public and private Gallery?

 

Thanks!
