Some Unicode characters are not convertable by Alteryx workflow

Hi @JohnJPS,

I use version 11.0 where I see only the option V_WSTRING (Forced). No option for V_STRING (FORCED).
When the previous excel file is uploaded, the data type never changed. Recent file is causing the data type to change it automatically.
Can Alteryx do anything about it?

Hi @JohnJPS ,


It worked. Forcing the data type to V_WSTRING (Forced) did the trick.

For a weird reason, I was unable to see the option yesterday.
