Issue

Error: No Valid Search Term 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 coming into the R input anchor (replace).



 

Resolution

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