Hi All

 

I am new to Alteryx with 8 learning hrs now. 

 

It is unable to keep original data  on the screen, then view the processed data, hard to do  the "before - after"  check.  I

 

Any ways to keep two results on the sceen? 

 

Any hints for me?

Hi @Terrymax ,

 

You can use Browse tools at any point in your workflow to see the data at that particular point.

For example, in the example below you can see two browse tools:

Browse 1:

Browse 2:

This allows you to see the data at every step of the workflow.

 

NOTE: You don't need to use the browse tools, you can simply click on the output node (the little green arrow on the right of the tool) to see the output of every tool.

 

This allows you to see the original data and the data as it changes at every step.

 

I hope this helps,

 

M.

@Terrymax ,

 

that's the kind of thing you would do in the old Excel method, not in Alteryx. 

Can you give more details about what you want to achieve and we can build it for you. Do you have some data showing what you're trying to achieve?

Hi @Terrymax 

 

How about using Join or Append tool to merge before and after data. Care must be taken when using Append tool as it can bloat your memory. Here's an example -

But I agree with @mceleavey, you need to think differently with Alteryx.

 

Best,

You could also "pop out" the two Browse tools into separate windows and place them side by side.

Thanks Mbarone!

 

Could you please advise how to "pop out" the two browser tools?

Sure, you can click on each browse tool one at a time, and in the upper right corner of the results window you'll see a "new windows" option:
