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.
Thank you for posting this amazing exercise.
I am new to Alteryx community. Does anyone know how to upload my yxmd and yxmc files onto Alteryx Community?
Here is my smiling-face macro:

I think that this is straight-forward (after finding the reverse update).
My solution.... in a single formula!! This might be the first time I've had a one-tool solution!! :)
