Hi 

I want to create a workflow that will import all the pdf files from network drive to SQL server. Is it possible to achieve using Alteryx? I am new to Alteryx, any advise ?

Are you wanting to store the PDF as a blob in the server?

If so, then yes you can.  Use the blob input to read in the pdf (or a wildcard in the name to read a directory of pdfs) and output to the server.
