Alteryx Candidate requesting help wtih use-cases for Parsing and joining data

Hello Alteryx Community!

I am a current job candidate for a role within Alteryx but have never used the tool before. Trying to watch lots of YouTube videos on use and starting the get the hang of things, but as they say the devil is in the details. 

Wondering if anyone has any tips for changing column data to headings (field headers) and adding other data elements (scores) to the bottom input?

I have used Parse and RegEx but can't seem to identify the correct syntax or if I'm even on the right track.

There is also a hint about Dynamic Rename, but haven't quite gotten there yet...

Any feedback or additional resources to investigate would be greatly appreciated!

Hey @Glennzilla1


You're on the right lines with Dynamic Rename ;) and you may want to lookup the union tool as well.

Hi Glenn,


Alteryx Academy is always a great place to start. Most of the lessons there are 5-8 minutes in length and should get you on the right track: 


Thank you for the feedback and ideas. I really appreciate the help!
