Pretty similar approach to many others. Although, after reviewing some solutions it is clear that I definitely could have used less steps!

I solved both with and without a macro.

I went back to my pre-Alteryx days and came up with solution that used few tools but necessitated a hard-coded list of Search/Bucket pairs.   But I like making solutions that are repeatable with different data sets, so I attempted to create a macro.  My mistake was attempting to duplicate my hard-coded solution rather than start fresh.

 

The posted challenge_11_solution_1.yxzp file contains a macro that utilizes a tool that I do not need to use often my daily work.  That macro is awesome but the solution had tools on either side of the macro to get it to the point of returning the expected data.  I copied that macro and nested it inside of a standard macro.
