Could someone please provide some insight.. i have used something like C:\Users\UserID\Test\ExcelLoad.xlsx in the input data source template
it is working fine right now but when i move the workflow to the gallery and schedule will it look for that folder C:\Users\UserID\Test\ExcelLoad.xlsx
on the server - will be getting an error because there is no such folder on the server - thanks for your time
4)I took an example file from the community and this is where i am banging my head to the wall
the workflow example that i took it from the community has the line in the "input datasoruce template" - This i did not modify it or i did not touch it all
how is it working? I do not have E drive on my PC or i have any excel file that is name is File1.xlsx - but when i run it i see the data getting from the SP folder file and it is what i want - this particular line i am not able to get it - i really appreciate your time if someone can explain me this
You will need to have your input files saved in a location that your server has access to - like a network folder that both your machine can access, for workflows development, as well as the server. Hope this helps. Cheers!
As @christine_assaad saied you have to put the file in a shared location that the Sever can access like share drive. After that I recommend you to use ALL UNC in order to be sure that the server have the same path as you used in local:
