Hi, I'm currently feeding about 4,000 URLs into the Download tool. Some of these may be old websites that are no longer hosted. As the records get passed, if the process runs into one of these (random, 1 in a 100 chance), the whole thing stops executing and errors out.
It would be fantastic if I could just tell it to skip any records that error out, instead of having the whole thing error out because of one dud website. I don't know which ones are duds until I pass them through the tool, so there's no way to filter them out upstream. Real Catch 22 here!
I have a coworker who's going to tackle this in Python instead, and he says he can put in a "try, except block" into his code. His words, not mine, and I know nothing about python code...but given what I know about Alteryx, there must be a way to build this into the tool!
