First time to attempt one of these. Hope I'm adding my solution correctly.

A quick fun one, and a great way to highlight a super useful string function! In my day-to-day work, I use this one all of the time to get the nth character from the end of a string.

I was thinking for a while how to approach this problem even considered an iterative macro (to cut off first and last letter and compare etc..). Then just for fun I checked what functions are available in alteryx - and the problem suddenly became very easy (hint hint)! That's the power of Alteryx I guess!

My solution.

Just found the ReverseString() function the other day... Would have taken a few more steps if there was mixed case, spaces, and punctuation. As it is, we just had to compare the string to the reversed string.
