    The latest version of Workbench is version 4, which includes the same functionality as 3, but has a brand new interface. If the txt file is delimited by a character, you can use the CSV file type to get it pulled in.

     

    For step by step instructions on getting data from a CSV file through Workbench 4, check out the article in the Help Center titled "How do I connect to CSV data in Workbench 4?"  You can get to the Help Center from your Domo instance by going to the main menu (down arrow in the top-right corner) and selecting the Help Center option. Then put the title above into the search.

     

    Could you let me know if that information helps you out?

    Is the Workbench service running using a user that has access to that network location? Also, it looks like the file you are looking for is on a mapped drive (O:). Depending on how the user is set up, it may not have that drive mapped for the service user. Can I suggest trying the UNC path instead of a mapped drive. For example, if O: is mapping to the shared folder "Data" on the server called "NetworkStorage", the UNC path would be "\\NetworkStorage\Data\Domo\Orders\OpenRequisitionsDataSet.txt"

    The solution works! I just did little additional changes.

     

    a. I used the IP address instead of the server's name on the transport method.

    b. Additionally I missed to set up the impersonation piece (Domain,Username and Password) which allow me to access the server.Smiley Frustrated

    Thanks everyone for your help and specially to zcameron!

  • Thanks everyone for your help.

    I used the CSV dataset type to import but it is not working. It works using previous Workbench version.

    This below is the error message and after [ERROR] you can see the log.

    Any idea?

    Thanks.

  • @GIriarte, did zcameron's follow-up answer help you? Also, please answer the follow-up question to better assist you!

  • I'm seeing the same error messange, however, the .csv file I'm trying to upload is saved on my local C drive so I definitely have access. I also tested and it says that the impersonation credentials are valid. Any idea on how to fix this? 

    Much appreciated!

  • Depending on where the file is on the C:, the user may still not have access to it, especially if it is in a user's folder (documents, desktop, etc.). I think it would be a worthwhile test to change the user that is running the workbench service to a user that has access to the specific folder that you're pulling from (maybe try your own to start with). You can do this by going to Administrative Tools -> Services -> Domo Workbench Service and by putting in specific credentials on the login tab.

     

    Let me know how that goes.
