Formula Tool - Number the Number of Expressions

In one of the recent releases, Alteryx enhanced the error message when there is an error within the Formula tool to display the error and the formula expression number.  

 

Example: 

Error: Formula (3): Parse Error at char(0): Unknown variable "TEST" (Expression #2)

 

My suggestion would be to label the different expressions within the formula tool with expression numbers.   And/or code the expression name when there is an error message.

I second this.  The error message isn't helpful if I have to count through 50+ formulas to find the right one with the error.  Adding expression numbers in the Configuration window would be a big help.

I third this !!  Counting expressions is not productive.
