Hi Guys,

 

I have a column of dates in Alteryx - Using the formulae tool I want to create a new column with the MAX date from the column of dates

Hi @Tommy_Alterax 

 

You can use a summarize tool and get max.

@Tommy_Alterax ,

 

 I'd like to add to @atcodedog05  and suggest that you want to use the APPEND FIELDS tool to add the max date value(s) onto the original records. 

cheers,

Hi - i dont want to break up my data and rejoin it then - Is there a way to do this using a formuale tool to create a new column and insert the max date out of all the months

Hi @Tommy_Alterax 

 

Nope thats not possible. You need to find max using summarize and use append tool to add it back.
