We'll be completing standard maintenance for our Single Sign-On system on November 30th 6pm Pacific Time for approximately one hour. During this time My Alteryx and sign-in functionality to all My Alteryx programs (Licensing Portal, Community, Beta Program, Case Portal, and others) may be inaccessible. Thank you for your patience.
Here is this week’s challenge, I would like to thank everyone for playing along and for your feedback. The link to the solution for last challenge #33 is HERE. For this chalenge let’s look at creating a macro from scratch. I recommend you first solve the problem with tools on the canvas, then cake a macro from the tools.
Use Case: Our customer has a need to convert date/time strings into a date-time format.
Examples of the different input formats include: 4/8/2015 4:00, 5/10/2015 13:00. The conversion is automatic when the hours are 2 digits (10-24), but it ignores hours 1-9 (creates NULL values on conversion).
Objective: Create a macro to effectively convert and preserve the data in a date-time format.
