My data set consists of credit card transactions. I have been using the REGEX_Match formula to find all credit card transactions with particular key words in the transaction description field, see below. This was manageable, but not very efficient.
I now need to create a listing of all credit card transactions with fields [first name] or [last name] matching any part of the [Merchant Name] field. This would require about 1,000 entries in the pattern portion of the REGEX_Match formula, which is not practical.
Please help me create a loop that would pull one name at a time from my separate employee list file and match it with any part of the [Merchant Name] field in my transaction file. The loop would repeat until it has performed the match for each of the names in my employee list file. Sorry in advance for not sharing the dataset, but the data is confidential.
