Upload to FTP - Step by step instructions not working for me

Highlighted
7 - Meteor

Hello;

 

I have attempted to follow the step by step instructions laid out here https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Knowledge-Base/Upload-to-SFTP-FTP/ta-p/20845 and here https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Knowledge-Base/File-Transfer-Protocol-FTP-Upload/t... 

I get a warning which reads, Warning: Download (3): No data received from "ftp://ftp.bballtest.com/Fortinet/Challenge Points.csv"; Check the headers for details. I BELIEVE I've followed everything in the posts. I get the file was read into a blob, but then no data received. I have attached my workflow. I don't know if anyone can look at it, but it would be much appreciated.

Could you try removing the space from the file name and call it ChallengePoints.csv or Challenge_Points.csv instead?

I am also facing the same issue (i am not using spaces in filename). I am using sftp, the upload is successful but  but i do not get back any success message. I get a warning saying "No Data Received"

 

Warning: Download (3): No data received from "sftp://<CompanyName>:<Port>/User2.txt"; Check the headers for details.

 

Even the header is empty. Any advise?

Thanks MichalM, I tried that but it didn't work. The messages I get in Download Headers are below.  I'm not sure where the error is, it looks okay to me.

Nothing suggests there's problem. Are you saying the file doesn't get uploaded?

Michael - I'm very sorry. Apparently this was running correctly, I was assuming it was not loading due to the warning, but it is in fact in the FTP folder correctly. Thank you for your help.

Good! I'm glad to hear. I appreciate that the message is confusing.

@MichalM @m1ngle74  I do not get any message in header even though the file gets uploaded successfully. Is there a reason why?

The response should come from the FTP server, if you can't see it, it probably doesn't send one.

You could try to post your workflow. I'm not sure I can help, but I can look to see if it's any different than mine.
