Challenge #14: Warehouse Distribution

Alteryx Certified Partner

This one caused a bit of head scratching...

I started out attempting an iterative macro but, still being new to macros, I couldn't figure out how to get the new count values to replace in the iterations.  I ended up using multi-row formulas to solve.  I'll be sure to check out all of the iterative macro solutions to hopefully get a better understanding of how those work.

Used running total and multi row formula tools. Going to try with macros as well.

Solution attached.  I kind of took a shortcut with byte to handle the negative numbers but it seems to have worked.

Solution attached.  I used a running total and multi-row formula tool rather than an iterative macro.

I used two multi-row formulas instead of a running total, which is quite an interesting idea.

Solved with the running total method as others have shared. Took a stab at the iterative macro and got stuck so thanks for highlighting that hole in my knowledge!

This was quite fun! (A bit thrown that the category of this question is 'macros' when it doesn't require a macro though)
