Hi,

 

I am very new to Alteryx. Just downloaded it and was going through the guided tour with a sample .yxdb file. Connected to the file through InputData tool and tried to use the Sort tool. But the fields are not getting displayed in the dropdown box of the Sort tool. Please help. Thanks.

Sorry, but I didn't understand where to find this. Is it inside Alteryx tool??

No problem @nnishapillai 

 

On the challenge page, click on the download button beside the start file(in blue below)

Once you've downloaded the workflow (.yxmd file), double click on it and it will open in Alteryx Designer.  There you'll find the Text Input tool that I showed in the previous post.

Thank you so much, Dan. Really appreciate it.

 

Are you familiar with how to convert string to date?. eg value is 01/08/19 11:04:22

Check the DateTime tool on the Parse palette

At this point it may be worth your time to check out the Getting Started videos in the Interactive Lessons.  They're only about 5 minutes each and they'll show you the fundamentals
