8 - Asteroid

Hello, 

I have a table which contains first name like this 


1 Lisa 2 John 3 Jonathon 4 William 5 Mario 6 Bradley 7 Amanda 8 Cole 9 Christina 10 Shirley 11 Michael 12 Alexandra 13 Patrick 14 Kevin 15 Steven 16 Kayla 17 Kimberly 18 Joseph 19 Michael 20 Nicole

 I want create another table containing 1000 records based on these condition 

 

FirstName : Random value from above names 

TransactionDate : any random date between 1975 & 1990

Status : Pick random value from these three (Pending , Processed ,Completed)

 

Is there anyway to do it in Alteryx (an example would be helpful)

Hi @tjamal1 ,

 

Here is an approach to solve your requirement.

 

I used rows generate tools to generate 1000 rows.

Later used RandInt function to assign random values for 3 columns which included an random Name ID field.

Later i joined the generated rows data and First Name list on Name ID.

Thanks for the detailed reply and solution , 

Is there any we could get date in full format instead of only year ?

 

like date between 01-01-1975 and 31-12-1990?

Hi @tjamal1 ,

 

Here is an approach including assigning random dates.

Apparently generating random dates is not simple generating random number.

Hence have creates a list of dates and used a randomly generated Date ID to join them.
