My First Alteryx challenge..
I am one of the SQL guys who is migrating to Alteryx.
Its exciting to see how the tool just grows on you.
Here is my solution for the challenge..
Very helpful exercise for someone who is staring on Alteryx
Gets easier with every join :)
Solution attached! Thought this would be a good first challenge to attempt, thanks for providing these!
I arranged my browses in the same orientation, with annotations, to match the original diagram.
I've often wondered, however, how to create more complex SQL joins in Alteryx.
inner join B
on (A.production_type = B.production_type
and a.year = 2014)
(A.Homeowner_type = B.Homeowner_type
and a.year =2013)
Because of my client's complex business rules, I often times find myself having to create fairly sophisticated join rules.
Any thoughts on how to do this in Alteryx?
I also encounter such complex joins in my work and yes sometimes the Alteryx workflow does look a bit busy, but it does the job.
I am pasting my solution for the joins that you mentioned, hopefully someone in community can provide a more optimised solution.
Thank you Sharad! very helpful.
So it looks like you just have to get creative with multiple join tools instead of Alteryx having the functionality to be more specific in one join tool.
Pretty much Jcdaniels, unless one can go outside 'In-Db' tab where whole range of tools are available to handle SQL joins.
I haven't used those much, hoping some expert can help us both here.
Here's my solution.
Thanks for the challenge, please see my results attached.
