Making Alteryx show how it calculates its output when the output file is an Excel workbook

Is there anyway to make alteryx show how it calculated its output in the excel output file. For example, in the output excel if I click on a cell with a calculation will it show the formula that it used to derive that answer?

Hi @JoseLCorona 


If you click on "Metadata" in the Results tab, and the Field "Source", you'll see which Formula the data came from.

But this will happen using Alteryx.


To export the Field "Source" along with the Metadata information, you need to use the Field Info tool.
