WDC for Tableau Tool used in an app that includes a macro

Hello,

 

this is the info taken from the help page for the tool:

 

"To use the Alteryx WDC tool, first create an app. This tool cannot be used with a workflow or macro."

https://help.alteryx.com/11.0/index.htm#cshid=TableauWDC.htm

 

No issues in getting that to work with simple apps; however, struggling with apps that CONTAIN a macro. According to my understanding, an app containing a macro should work, right? The exclusion only extends to standalone workflows or macros, correct? So, anyone successfully applied the WDC tool yet with an app containing a macro? (to clarify: my WDC tool sits at the end of the app; it is NOT contained in the macro of my app).

 

Thanks,

 

Oli

Hello Oliver,

 

Your understanding is correct, an app that contains a macro does work, I have tested this on my own machine.  I applied a standard macro into my workflow and was still able to run the web data connector in Tableau.

 

Thanks,

 

Nick
