Is it true that the Write to Excel Template node-version 4.7.1 is experiencing an error? Last time, I had a question about this node and decided to upgrade to a higher version (my current company does not allow the use of 4.7.3, only 4.7.1). When I use it to create a new file with the overwrite function, it encounters an error. I have tried it on different machines. What should I do? Has anyone else encountered a similar issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi @quangdatitc ,
I can confirm that I see the same behaviour that you are experiencing. (I’m on KNIME AP 4.7.2)
In this case if c:\temp\anotherfile.xlsx exists, the following error occurs, even though the “overwrite” option is set
cc @AnotherFraudUser for help
In the meantime, as a possible workaround, one option could be to include a
Delete Files/Folders node prior to the Write to Excel Template:
Even with “fail if delete fails” unticked, this will unfortunately fail anyway if the file doesn’t exist, so you’ll need to enclose it in a try-catch as follows:
Just have the input flow-variable port wired to your existing workflow from the node prior to your Write to Excel Template.
Will look into this issue and fix it as soon as possible
Same thing is happening on my end. My current workaround is to manage the output file by flow variable. That way I can pre-check and delete if necessary, then when writing to that new file subsequent times in the same workflow I set up the other Write To Template nodes to use that newly created file as the template and just write into that new one directly.
Just wanted to add a quick thank you for this node! I had a curve ball with one of my clients that gave me less than a week to design and build custom user friendly interactive budgeting spreadsheets for hundreds of locations with all of the basis values and user settings pre-filled so that they were 90% done before any adjustments. This would have been impossible without your node. Thanks!
This community is truly amazing, and I wish I had known about it sooner. Thank you for the enthusiastic help from all of you.
