Create Dynamic Output to Excel

Is there a way to create a dynamic output to Excel?

 

I have a large file of many addresses with the County included.  Sorted by County.  I want to output all the addresses of each County to a separate Excel file named after the County.  (Lets assume no two Counties have the same name.)

 

Columns are: address, city state, county and zip

Hi @Brad1 there is using the output options of the Output Tool. If you use the county column change the file name it will output a file per county.

Hi @Brad1,

 

You can select this in the output tool:

(1) Select check box "Take file / table name from field"

(2) Select "Change file / table name" from dropdown

(3) Select dropdown for field containing file name or part of file name to be "County"

(4) Select check box "Keep field in output"

This should create two new files (as my text input just has County 1 and County 2)

If this solves your issue please mark the answer as correct, if not let me know! I've attached my workflow for you to download if needed.

 

Regards,

Jonathan

My method is the same as @JosephSerpis, just a little slower!
