“Unhandled Exception occurred” error is thrown when you copy and paste text (Ctrl-V) using the R Tool.
Now, to witness it happening:
Looking at the error log you will see error message below:
Default Log path - C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\ErrorLogs\AlteryxGUI
If you look at the log, you can see the error is directly related to the FIPS cryptographic algorithms. According to Wikipedia, FIPS stands for Federal Information Processing Standards and it is a “standard developed by the United States federal government for use in computer systems by non-military government agencies and government contractors”.
As of right now, “Unhandled Exception occurred” error will be thrown in the R Tool if FIPS compliance is turned on .
Our Development team is fully aware of the problem with the FIPS compliance and is planning to sort this out in the future releases. As for temporary solution, you can consider turning off the FIPS compliance, of course after checking and making sure your IT manager is okay with it, and this should resolve the “Unhandled Exception occurred” error.
Here’s how you can turn off FIPS compliance:
There are other ways to turn on/off FIPS compliance and you can find them here:
As most of us can agree, predictive models can be extremely useful. Predictive models can help companies allocate their limited marketing budget on the most profitable group of customers, help non-profit organizations to find the most willing donors to donate to their cause, or even determine the probability a student will be admitted into a given school. A well-designed predictive model can help us make smart and cost-effective business decisions.
You’re creating an app that involves dates. You want the user to be able to dynamically select the dates being used in the app, though. The tools you already know may not work. A Text Box would be too messy and allow lots of room for error. Pre-defined Drop Downs and List Boxes aren’t dynamic enough. Ah ha! What about that tool that looks like a calendar? The Date tool in the Interface category provides the perfect solution!
A close relative of the Layout Tool , the Visual Layout Tool is the newest, and coolest, Reporting Tool on the block. Sporting all the badassery of the original Layout Tool in its ability to format and arrange reporting objects, the Visual Layout Tool differentiates in that it provides an intuitive, visual, interface that allows for easy drag-and-drop organization of multiple reporting object inputs. Basically, it’s the reporting tool category equivalent of upgrading from Paint to Photoshop.
Don’t know the area of your polygon? Need the length of your line? Do you want your spatial object’s X and Y coordinates? Don’t Panic! The Spatial Info tool can translate all that information and more!
If you are building a predictive model, inevitably you will want to analyze the effect that your independent variables have on your dependent variable. This article is meant to shed some light on the Alteryx-specific options for this type of analysis!
The Dynamic Replace Tool is an under-utilized tool in the Developer Toolset that is very powerful. It allows for dynamic formulas or conditions to be used in your workflow. It was first introduced in Alteryx 6.1 . It’s one of the few tools that is currently multi-threaded which makes is fast.
The humble histogram is something many people are first exposed to in grade school. Histograms are a type of bar graph that display the distribution of continuous numerical data. Histograms are sometimes confused with bar charts, which are plots of categorical variables.
The Transpose tool pivots data for all selected fields. The column headers are listed in the name field and the corresponding data items are listed in the value field. You can also select key fields which will remain unchanged through the transformation. The transpose tool is often used in conjunction with the Cross Tab tool, which essentially works in the opposite direction.
A must-have for any app or macro, the Error Message Tool displays a prompt to the user based on input from Interface Tools . Using any expression that evaluates to true, along with any number of user inputs from question anchor connected Interface Tools, the Error Message Tool can layer even the most involved applications with failsafes that ease a user’s experience through more robust interactions.
