Hi Alteryx 🙂
When you set maximum records per file, the filename gets _# appended. Great! But in reality you get:
The first filename doesn't get a number. I think that it should.
or at least be an option!
Agree with you Mark.
Thanks for the feedback 🙂
or even the "_0" prefix would suffice if we are sticking with a 0 based id system. My only thought is that it would have to have some sort of lookahead function in the output tool so that if there isn't supposed to be a 2nd file, then keep the naming structure minus the suffix. That way we don't get a single file with MyFileName_1.csv as the output. that would be ideal i think. Or @MarqueeCrew (#DataTrendsetter) would you rather output the _1 to the first and only file?
or we could have a number Dropdown to choose 0 or 1? So many product choices. Maybe this should be a Crew macro?
mark (aka #datatrendsetter)
Definitely could be a crew macro - probably even better functionality that way anyway - can all of the output options be exposed though... hmmm just thinking - it'd be cool if a macro could have the same output options as the output tool (as a question)...
All output methods are numbered. But numbered databases shouldn't be supported. I think that flat, csv are the primary use cases. Which others do you think?
I've used max records in yxdb, csv and flat that i can think of, but i wonder if shp/tab should be supported as well.
