Hi getting the following error : Excel File Opener (5) Tool #3: Record #2: Tool #26: The external program "..\SupportingFiles\unzip.exe" returned an error code: 9

 

Any idea how to manage this

@camerondsteele  I'm new to Alteryx, but your macro really saved me a ton of time.  However, I have excel sheets on a sharepoint site that I need to run this macro on, but your macro does not accept UNC for SharePoints.  Any thoughts on how to remedy that?

Hi @prpatel.  Did you every resolve how to read Excel files from your SharePoint site.  I will be doing the same thing.  

 

Cheers!

Facing the same problem as @Harsh_sagar - Any solution?

@darlingdl & @TapasTR ,

 

Sorry for seeing this now.  I took a different approach.  I told my users to consolidate their excels into just one file with many tabs, so I was able to bring in all tabs and append them with little issues.

This was my work around....it may not work for you.

 

Again...sorry for the late reply.

Hi @camerondsteele

Thank you very much for this great work! 

I test the workflow, it works perfectly on the old engine. However, I keep getting this error on the new Alteryx version (with AMP engine).

 

Error: Excel File Opener (66): Tool #5: Record #1: Tool #1: Set up a Connection to use the Tool
Error: Excel File Opener (66): Tool #5: The output connection "Output" was not valid

Any chance you will make an update to solve this issue? 

Again, many thanks in advance.

Was there a solution to the AMP engine issue?

 

I am having the same problem with the my workflow.

Turn off your AMP Engine, in your settings as well as in the workflow-configuration settings.

 

Good luck

My company blocked the downloading of this file. Is there anywhere else I can find this file and try?

@JokeFun ...chances are that if they blocked the downloading of this tool from the Alteryx.com site, then they've probably blocked it from other sites.  You should contact your IT Dept. to download it for you.

 

Good Luck.
