It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
My dataset has the name of the store, address line 1, City, State, and 5-digit Zip code, all in one cell of Excel. Picture below. I have also attached the Excel file. Essentially I would like to have each of these in a separate column. I am fairly new to Alteryx and am struggling to figure out how I can achieve my goal. Any kind of help is much appreciated. Thank you so much!
There's a lot of nuance/edge cases to parsing addresses. The string parsing method @atcodedog05 and @PhilipMannering posted is quick and effective for these cases, but may not always provide the desired result depending on how the inputs vary. The best strategy is to use tools specifically for parsing addresses that references address databases like CASS (Coding Accuracy Support System).
This tool takes the single input field, compares those components using CASS, and outputs the individual fields you desire. The standardized field output can then be used for geocoding or mail circulation. The drawback is that access to this tool requires the purchase of the location insights data from Alteryx.
