Output : distinguish between Append Prefix/Suffix to File and to Table

Hello all,

As specified in the title, this idea is to distinguish between Append Prefix/Suffix to File and to Table on the Output Data Tool.


For most files (csv...), the table name does not really exist. However, for at least Excel files, if you choose this option, the result will be one sheet by suffix and the only option to have one file by suffix will be to change entire file path.

I think this is a great idea and it makes total sense, since it's not always that a file represents a table itself. And like you said, building an entire file path with Formula Tool is painful for beginners. Think about it, you're explaining how easy Alteryx is for Excel users, and then you have to set up a logic to create a full path to generate new files?
