This would be a game changer!
Thanks for the tip ned, we will give SQLite a try today. It's really great.
I think a few of users were trying to read write and then append back to yxdb.
SQLLite works like a charm! Really encourage other users to try this.
Thank you Ned! Been wondering about that!
Ned- Thanks for your response and I understand where you are coming from. One difficulty we face (and one that I bet is quite common) is that any setting up of additional software requires IT / admin rights for installation, maintenance, etc. I can't even download SQLite to try it out without IT's involvement. Hence, being able to append to the native Alteryx database would save us a fair amount of startup time.
That said, we will look into SQLite as a way of appending, as this is a function we need. Our files are too large to continue appending as CSV, XLSX, but our organization isn't really big enough to maintain a true enterprise data warehouse.
You don't need to download SQLite. It is built in to the Alteryx Input and Output tools. No drivers or anything required.
Ned - correct me if I'm wrong, but I see about a 3x increase in file size if I go from YXDB to SQLLITE. Does that seem right? My input is simply a YXDB. No tools in between. Just a YXDB input and a SQLLITE output. But the file size goes from about 50MB to 150MB.
