Issue

Error: No Valid Find Within Field was Configured.

 

Environment Details

 
  • Alteryx Designer
    • All Versions
  • Find Replace


Cause

 

The Find Replace tool works on string fields; this error occurs when there are no string fields in the dataset/ connection coming into the F input anchor (find).


 

 

Resolution

Make sure there are string fields in the dataset to search within. To see the metadata, click on the connection line (second image). To convert the field, use a ToString() function in a Formula tool.
