Warning: ... There is no Question corresponding to the specified App/Macro value "Input...

When I run a workflow with inserted an own macro I get the warning:


Warning: ... There is no Question corresponding to the specified App/Macro value "Input...".  The App/Macro may be out of date.



I have changed in the develop macro the Macro Input Tool configuration from File Input to Text Input and deselect the Show Field Map option


What is the meaning of the warning!

Thank you for your support.

I can't give you a workarroud when the warning appear.

My steps:

I insert the macro to a workflow and save the workflow. Always work fine.

The next day a open the workflow with the macro include. The warning appear.

Than I delete the macro and insert the macro again. The warning disappear, mmh. busy I know.


Now I don't see this warning any more.

So it is difficult to have a look on it and make a statement. When you never have seen this warning before.

I get support from Aleryx Support Team Paul Noire.

The warning occur when I connect a macro with an Macro Input Field >> Text Input. When I run the workflow sometimes Alteryx did not know witch data type has been chosen. The workarround is to connect a Select Tool between the connection. The Select Tool selected the right data types.



Hi If not already figured out - Just Open the yxmc file and look for your node number and delete the whole node section. I had same error with node 97 and deleted below section and saved - I recovered the file.


Hope this helps!
