Load CSV file coming zipped with dynamic name

Highlighted

Hi Folks,

 

I am receiving weekly data in CSV format but it comes in a zip file named like this:

 

DATA_2018-12-03.zip

 

This zip contains a CSV file DATA_2018-12-03.csv

 

I want to schedule the workflow to run automatically and I tried to use the Dynamic Input or even the Run Command to unzip the file but couldn't make it run properly. 


Do you have any suggestions on this?

 

Thanks.

Have a look at this post that shows how to read data from zipped files. Hopefully it points you in the right direction.
