Hi, I have this csv file to read and i'm using "\0" as delimiter cause when I use the pipe |   the input tool doesn't work. Therefore I'm using the TextToColumn tool to try break them into columns but the first column keep having multiplesregister. How can I fix that?

Hey @DanielKimura !

 

Maybe can be a silly question and sorry for that hehehe but you tried to select and copy the "|" symbol of your data to put in the text to columns instead of type in the "|"?

 

Some times do that fix the problem.

Classic sped! I already work a lot with that files.

 

Don't configure to input like csv, input like flat file and will work.

 

Look the example attached.

 

Hope that works to you!

Can I ask you a favor? I'm not able to open the .yxzp file. My alteryx run in a previous version and I can't update, can you send me a .yxmd version?

Actually, will have the same problem with workflow file, which version you have?

 

A tip for you, you can open the workflow file with notepad and change the version in there.

 

you can follow the configs of the images of the input here as well.

 

If works to you, don't forget to mark the answer as solution to close the topic and make easier to the other persons find that solution 🙂
