Many files I use are in .xlsb format.
AWESOME! I cannot wait.
Any update on the ETA for this ?
@rohan_tibarewala 2018.1 shipped yesterday with xlsb support. You can download it from licenses.alteryx.com. The release notes are here.
@patrick_digan I just tried to open a XLSB file without success.
What connector is to be used as part of the "input data"?
This was part of the 18.1 release.
@matthewgriset xlsb should be an option in the dropdown for the input data tool.
If it's not there, you likely need the Access Database 2010 Engine: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Knowledge-Base/Microsoft-Access-accdb-Input/ta-p/34051. You'll want to install the version compatible with your office installation, which is generally x86.
I can't find this in the drop down either. I believe that I have the right add on because I see .accdb in my list. @AlexP mentioned that it was released in 18.1, but my version is 220.127.116.11598?
Edit: In case anyone else runs into this... I reached out to AlexP and she said that I needed to install 2018.1 version. Alteryx didn't let me know of the new version like it usually does, and even checking for updated through the application mentioned that I was up to date.
Here are the release notes and download portal:
We have many cases where XLSB is required as an input. We use macro on Designer Desktop, but it does not work in Gallery.
