What does this error mean?
There was an error opening "[filepath].yxdb": Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.
This error occurs when a user attempts to open an Alteryx data file (yxdb) by going to File --> Open Workflow.
This option is specifically designed to open only workflows (yxmd), macros (yxmc), apps (yxwz), and packages (yxzp).
To read an Alteryx data file in to Alteryx please make sure to use an Input Data Tool and navigate to your .yxdb file accordingly. This will insert your data file in to your workflow and enable you to use subsequent Alteryx tools to blend, cleanse, parse, manipulate and augment your data until your heart is content!
