Challenge #2 submission!
I don't know if this is a dead thread, but I was trained that the quotes are text qualifiers, while the comma itself is the delimiter. Is this not the case?

First attempt, got the job done but the regex function repetition wasn't ideal. I saw other users using TRIM inside the formula tool. I'll be leveraging that in my second attempt.

Nice approach. I like the idea of removing all the punctuation for this problem. What would happen if there was punctuation in one of the strings, i.e,  "Mary, the dog enthusiast, had a little lamb!". This could alter the structure of the sentence if you just removed all the punctuation though. I think the idea is to just target the quotes at the start and the end of the string. 

 

Also, on your last part of your solution (you used int64) for the poemID datatype. You'd be better off using int16 as it wouldn't use as much memory space. Int16 will store numbers between these values:-32,768 to 32,767 and the poem IDs are definitely between these values
