Here's my solution:

I have attached my solution.

I solved this riddle, but the solution was much more elegant than my method, but incorrect.  ;)  Just sorting the letters alphabetically and comparing them that way is better but 'racecar' = 'racecar' that is not an anagram because the letters are not used in a DIFFERENT order.

I must have tried at least 4 different methods before I found one that worked.

I tokenise both words on '\w' and then create a letterID.
Then I use the replacefirst function in a multi-row formula to replace any matching letters from word1 to word2 with nothing.
I then take the last row per word and if it's empty then you can spell word2 using the letters of word1.
I do the opposite thing in a different stream and then join them on recordID.
If you can spell both words using the letters of the other then they are anagrams, otherwise they're not.

I worked on a non-macro solution, will challenge myself with an iteration macro next.
