Total beginner to KNIME (esp. with looping/flow variables), so apologies for what’s probably a simple problem:
I’ve created a flow that begins with manually pointing file reader to get the input, does a bunch of simple data manipulation, then uses CSV writer at the very end to manually save the output.
I’ve started looking into loops so that this process will iterate for any number of files stored in a folder called ‘For Loop’. I think I have the start of it sorted out by using List Files > Table Row to Variable Loop Start, then using the URL flow variable to steer the File Reader that begins the original flow.
That’s fine and good, but I don’t know how to deal with the output side of it. For one, CSV writer has no output (I mean the black triangles you use to link nodes), so how can you include writing as part of a loop? That’s my first barrier, but I’m also wondering how you can store the current iteration’s file name to automatically have the file writing use a naming convention of [input name] & “_output”
Thanks for any guidance.
