I'm trying to do an operation that it quite simple in excel but i can't seem to figure out how to do it in Alteryx with either the Find Replace tool or the Dynamic Replace tool. I simply want to change every instance in every cell across an entire excel file (searching every row and column) of a particular data string (i.e. "January") and change it (i.e. to "February").
much appreciate any help to figure this out, thanks.
the examples in that article did not match my issue and seemed unnecessarily complex, especially considering i was able to run a test with a simple FORMULA tool as below (with the column "Month" as my output column in the config box):
F [MONTH]="January" THEN "February" ELSE [MONTH] ENDIF
this changed all instances of "January" in the single column/field "Month" to "February".
now the problem I still have:
How to use this to changeeveryinstance of "January" in the entire file, every cell in every row and column/field to "February?
I hope i don't need to line up 25 FORMULA tools to change every column!
