projected coordinate system EPSG 3857 or srid 900913

Meteor
I would like to do web mapping and I couldn't find this Web Mercator projection in Alteryx. Where can I find it or is this projection called differently in Alteryx? If it doesn't exist, can Alteryx provide a Well Known Name/Text file? Reference here:http://spatialreference.org/ref/sr-org/7483/

Thanks!


EDIT:
Below is a dump of the WKT file from spatialrefenrence.org I would like to use. I am getting an error using this data in the custom projection field for the output I am trying to generate. 
Error: Output Data (2): No available conversion between projections
I even looked at other Alteryx projections to see the format and it does look different. See below. So I modified the custom projection text different ways but I cannot get it to work. Can you tell me how to fix this so I can get output with geometry in 3857 projection?
 
Thanks!

From Alteryx, custom projection data for Mercator & Robinson. Ignoring EXTENSION, it still looks different than above.

Is this in regards to mapping to an input or output?  In the Output Tool, you can specify a custom projection for certain file types, such as OleDB Spatial Database and ESRI SHP File.

This is for output for shapefile used in a web map. By default, isn't the coordinate system set to WGS84 for output (I just installed 9.5 and I can' t tell anymore but I believe this the coord sys was used in older versions of Alteryx)? I would like to switch from wgs84 to 3857 for my output but I don't see it in the list of projections. Can you tell me how I can reproject to 3857?

In your output, try clicking on the Projection Properties:


Next, you can search for your projection.  I tried 3857, but could not find any matches.  Because of this, you can enter a custom projection here:


I recommend looking at examples of other projections to make sure you have the correct syntax.  Thanks!
