Dual Output Tool

When using an OUTPUT tool, you can currently only output to one (1) format.  My idea is to allow for a checkbox to create a YXDB file format when you output to another format.  In many instances a copy of the CSV data in YXDB file format is needed.  Creating another output requires another tool with nearly identical information.  This is my backup copy to what I sent the customer is an example.

 

Cheers,

Great idea Mark.  Virtually all my production workflows have 2 outputs of the same data - one for the end user in whatever format they want (usually CSV or XLSX) and one YXDB.

This would be a handy feature!

I love this idea.  I do this with multiple outputs ALL THE TIME.  🙂
