I am creating a workflow, where I want to export a list of data. I have used Data Extraction component and the workflow ran successfully but I was not able to see any file being exported. May be, I am looking at wrong place. Can anyone help me where exactly I can find the exported file?
In the Data Extracton (file) workflow object under the file name field you would have provided a file name (for example "<filename>.txt") and also setup the fields to be extracted using the "Edit the file format" link right under this.
Now upon running this, the extraction is done directly to a dedicated folder on the server. The path to this for example on a windows server installation is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Campaign v6\var\<instancename>\export". The quivalent on a Linux server would be "/usr/local/neolane/nl6/var/<instancename>/export".
Workflow and settings in the Data Extraction (File)
To add to what Donald stated, unlike the Data loading (file) activity, which can push a local file to the server, you don't have the option with Data extraction to download the file to your local machine. You would need to set up FTP or have direct access to the server.
