@patrick_digan,

 

Are you suggesting that CReW should create a "Expect Close Enough" macro?

 

Cheers,

Here is my response to my first weekly challenge. It may not be as pretty as some of the others, but I did it... I have much more to learn.

About the same as everyone else!  I added a formula and crosstab at the end to create a table by year showing name and occurrences for each gender.

Hi,

 

I'm new to Alteryx and this is my first challenge, so I'm trying to take it easy. I may not have got there the most efficient way but I think I'm there.

Hi! Still trying to grip on this! Lol. I initially did an odd Sort that screwed up the frequency of names. I actually had to take a peak at a few other solutions to see where I was going wrong (sorry if that's cheating). Obviously there are a ton of quicker ways to get the solution but as I get more comfortable I'll be using half the tools. HA

But I finally got there!
