Generate missing rows

5 - Atom

Hi All,


I'm new to Alteryx and trying to figure out how to solve the below problem.


I have a sales dataset with Country and Segment dimensions. But some countries do not have data for all the Segments.

So I need to generate missing segment rows for each country with 0 sales.


Usually, I would use Excel pivot table feature "Show items with missing data". But I have a huge dataset that Excel is not able to handle. 


As shown in the below screenshot, I need to transform the "Before" table to "After" table.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @shivraj2,


Please try the attached workflow.

Another option:image.png

The Summarize/Append tools are creating every possible combination, and the Join/Union tools end up adding the extra rows.  The Data Cleansing tool at the end subs in 0's for nulls.


Hope it helps!
