Gzip File Support

Use the Input Data Tool to select one or more data files stored within a Gzip (*.gz, *.tgz) file. The following file formats can be read from a .gz, or a .tgz file and extracted to a temporary location on your hard drive:

.cydb, .dbf, .kml, .grc, .grd, .qvx, .sas7bdat, .sav, .sz, .xlsm, .xlsx, .xlsx (legacy), .xls, .xml, .avro, .csv, .json, .yxdb

Additional Information

  • If the files being extracted exceed 2GB, select the Allow Extraction of Files >2GB from the Input Data tool's Configuration window.
  • Designer supports a 15 to 1 compression rate for the Gzip layer. Verify that you have 15 times the compression rate.


    If your compressed Gzip file is 1GB, make sure that you have 15GB of space available on your hard drive.

  • Gzip files are not supported in Alteryx Gallery.
