Identifying Common Words in a String Field


I have a list of about 300 project names. I would like to analyze the project names to determine common words, for example "Lotion" may be contained in 25 of the project names. Since it is a small list, I can do this manually, but it would be great if alteryx could help me out. Any thoughts on ways to do this analysis using alteryx?

I've attached one potential solution to this reply.


The overview is to get all of your project names in Alteryx and parse them into individual words. Then those words can be counted and quantified however you'd like. I applied the uppercase( function to account for differences in capitalization between records.
