Web File Sharing

Highlighted

I have a file (that I lovingly call a "data puddle") supplied by a vendor into a web based file sharing service. I can get Alteryx to download a file by the same name, but the contents are empty. The file is a plain data dump with no extension. When pulled from an internal drive, I read it as a delimited text file.

 

Any hints?

 

Thanks!

@earth2joy - would adding an extension to the file path via Formula and reading via Dynamic Input work?

@earth2joy Have you tried reading the file in as a .csv with \0 delimiter?
