Hi @MAAbdullahAlMubarah you need to look at the spatial tool category. You also need a spatial dataset which contains the spatial detail for either Zip or Quarter name).

 

This one provides ZIP detail.

You would then need to input the file as a .shp file into Alteryx, and perform a spatial match against your lat/long dataset.

No sorry; the community only works if you are willing to make an attempt to build part of the solution yourself otherwise you won't improve your knowledge of the tool if you just take our solutions for different parts and stitch them together!

Please make some attempt at researching and building what I have described.

Ben

Sure I'll do thanks for your feed-back.
