We're having a same issue as reported by "Error reading the dictionary - filename may be invalid" from jshah120, marked as solved. Yet none of the solutions seem to be working.
We're on Alteryx version 184.108.40.206674, receiving several files from a SAS environment trasferred to a windows environment where Alteryx runs.
Not sure whether I should raise it as a new topic; but it's not solved : I'm out of ideas what to try here... where to start looking. - I tried renaming the file - I tried copying the file to another location - No weird filenames or paths."D:\temp\renamed.sas7bdat" - We can open it through SAS - The file is not all that big : 4.5 Mb
- I've looked at the properties on the file and the security side, yet that doesn't seem to be different from files that do work...
What else is there to try - other ideas on how to troubleshoot this?
If I use the directory input from alteryx, I can see that alteryx can "see the file", I can also force it to load into txt format; then I can se lots of gobble-g... but not possible from there to then actually do something with the data...
Thanks if someone has any pointers in the right direction what I should be looking at?
