Hello everybody,

 

I am quite new to Alteryx and i have a table which looks like:

 

NAME Attr1 Attr2 Attr3 Attr4 Attr5
A a f k p u
A b g l q v
B c h m r w
C d i n s x
B e j o t y

 

I want to group the name so that every name is unique and all of its attributes are in the same column:

 

A B C
a c d
f h i
k m n
p r s
u w x
b e  
g j  
l o  
q t  
v y  

 

I would be very happy if someone has an idea how to implement this as a worklfow in Alteryx?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey mherm,

Full disclousure, this isn't a full solution but should get you going. Attached is a workflow that will get the data to where you want it but transposed. Take a look, I hope it helps!

I got this working however needed to select out the columns by name; perhaps there's a better way, e.g. if you have lots of names.

I've attached the workflow.

Hey jack_morgan,

 

works perfect! Thank you for the quick response!

I combined it with  "Text to Columns" and now its exactly what I was looking for.

 

Thanks,

Michael

Hi JohnJPS,

 

thanks for your solution. This works also but as you indicated its not practicable in case of many names which is also true for my specific case.

I used the solution of jack_morgan and combined it "Text to Columns".

 

Thanks

Michael
