## Challenge #235: Spell It Out For Me - Part 2

Alteryx

At first I just did the cents to work out the rules, and then it was easy enough to back that into the other cases once I transposed everything. I haven't had formulas that long for a while.

I shortened the formulas by doing part of it that would apply to all first and then just call that field later

Here is my solution:

Certainly not the most efficient! Looking forward to diving into other solutions! Video solution here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPdte_54v2E&list=PL18SpOXDj-KMUD4YwWC5vZaUsIa7drxNZ&index=39

This was a tricky one for me.

I was really inspired by my mentor for this. He completed his solution in just 2 tools! I took, maybe 4...

All the magic happens in the Formula tool!

5 - Atom

That was fun. I may have gone a bit overboard with the Find Replace.

Hey,

Attached my solution here. This was very interesting to solve. While I was able to get the output, I had to use multiple joins, unions to get there. I am sure there are other easier ways. I will review other answers to learn just that.

This one took a while, but it was mostly just brainstorming the best way to assign the words to the numbers in the columns. I'm sure there are more elegant solutions out there, but mine does the trick just great and even includes the grammatically-correct hyphen in between tens and ones for numbers over 20! For example, my workflow spells out 371 as three hundred seventy-one.

I didn't like this one.

Curious to see if others managed a more elegant solution 👀
