I am using ArcPro2.8.2 to run a model in Model Builder. The Model is using table to excel to export selected files to an excel spreadsheet. However, when I browse to place the xls file, it adds the ".*" to the end of the path and the tool will not run.

Requests solutions or suggestions. Has anybody seen this before, how did you fix it?

I have attached a PDF  graphic of the Model

is the filter for the output location specified as a workspace? (that is, a folder)

if it is specified as a file that is why.  If the output is a file, in a folder then the extension has to be specified as well

We have tried specifying and it still adds the .* to the end

Did you then try "workspace" and see if enables you to select the folder and specify the filename?

I am unclear what you are referring to. Is "workspace" a tool? Or are you indicating something we have in the Model?

the parameter is a workspace, that is, the output location for the result
