Wildcard in Alteryx (*)

by Hannah Laughton

Using the Input Data tool and want to import multiple files simultaneously? Wildcard is your friend (and so will I be after this post)! Side note: file formats need to be the same.

Step 1:

Drag and drop the Input Data tool onto your canvas.

Step 2:

Configure as if you were connecting a single file.

Step 3:

Replace the portion of the file name (used to differentiate between files) with an asterisk '*' - this will bring in all the data.

Step 4: Run Workflow (Ctrl+R)!
