Output Data Tool

Last modified: September 09, 2021

Docs are available before the release of Designer Cloud so you can get a sneak peek. This content might change between now and the official release.

One Tool Example

Output Data has a One Tool Example. Visit Sample Workflows to learn how to access this and many other examples directly in Alteryx Designer.

Use Output Data to write results of a workflow to supported file types or data sources. Use other tools to write to other supported data sources. For a complete list of data sources supported in Designer Cloud, visit File Types Support.

Select the Output Data tool in the palette, and drag it onto the workflow canvas.

Configure the Tool

The Output Data tool configuration consists of 2 main parts:

  • You must first type in a File Name for the output.
  • Then, you must configure settings associated with that file via the Options section.

Options vary based on the file or database to which you connect. Visit File Format Options for important configuration information.

Download Output File

After you run the workflow, you can download the output file in 2 ways:

  1. Select the Output Data tool on the canvas and select Download from the Output Tool Configuration window.
  2. In the Results window, select the Messages tab, locate the output file and select the file link.
