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.
A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.
When humans deal with numbers, decimal number (Base10) is common. But we can also represent values in other bases. For example, a hexadecimal number is in Base 16; one use of this system is to represent HTML color codes. Computers also use the binary (Base2) and hexadecimal number systems extensively!
Your task is to create a Base Converter by making an analytic application. Your app will convert the given decimal numbers into the specified base ‘n’ numbers. You have to configure the application interface so that user can specify the base ‘n’ (‘n’ must be set to integer between 2 and 16).
Note that number exceeding 10 is usually expressed in alphabet( 10->a, 11->b,,,). Please use the provided Integer to letter table to convert your answer to the correct format.
I decided to use the alteryx abacus to avoid iterative macros and reference shortcuts to pass the variable into the generate rows tool. My workflow will error out if you don't have the abacus installed.
