2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

I wasn't able to do it without altering the XLS files (included name of the xls within the book).
Also, because I've used Transpose function, my "Row 2" was different than "Row 2" from the solution.
I think I've overcomplicated this...

Here is my solution for this one:  (similar to the approach by everyone else)

Still unable to understand this : 

IF [FileName]=[Row-1:FileName] THEN [Row-1:Row]+1 ELSE 1 ENDIF

 

Can anyone tell me what exactly are we doing in this IF statement?
