Debating whether or not to upgrade to the latest version of Alteryx Designer?
I would like to update fields by the largest string counts. The sample data is following:
In this case, string count "75" is the largest number. Therefore, I would like to update Specialty field to "Allopathic & Osteopathic Physicians|Internal Medicine|Transplant Hepatology".
I was trying to use the Multi-Row formula. I could only update one row, but not all rows.
I would appreciate if there is any suggestions.

I love the Multi_row formula tool but I didn't use it here.
I SORT the records so the highest count was the first record.
Then I used the SELECT RECORDS tool to get just the first record (because the S.R. tool doesn't get much love)
Then I APPEND FIELDS to add the specialty name of the longest string to each record
Then I use SELECT to drop the original specialty and rename the longest specialty
Thank you for your reply. This is good when I have only one name. Sorry that I didn't tell you that I have more than one name. For example, I have 3 names: Apple, Banana, and Orange.
In this case, the desired output is following:
I think the select record tool does not work for this particular example. Is there any way to filter out the largest Specialty String Count per person so that I can append later on like you did?
I think I figured it out!
Thank you for your help.
