Wildcard XLSX Input Error

Hello,

 

i keep receiving the below error message no matter what folder I am referencing. Data is still coming over (not sure if all data is). Not sure if this error message just always populates since the data is coming over or if there should be no error message.

hi @garretwalters12 

 

The ~$Filename.xlsx are synchronization files that Excel creates when you open the corresponding Filename.xlsx.  If excel is closed normally, the ~$files will be erased.  If something happens though, i.e. Excel hangs, computer freezes, power outage, etc, the ~$file will remain in the subdirectory.  They contain no actual data and can usually be erased if no one is using the actual file.  

 

As long as the error doesn't stop your process from running you can probably ignore it.
