The link to last week’s challenge (challenge #27) is HERE

Use Case:  A company has to process financial data for their visualization tool.  Today this is a manual process in Excel.

Objective:  Build a process in Alteryx that automates the formatting of the daily data feed.

Note: This data comes in daily and is always in the exact same format.

Took a different approach than the last cleaning exercise, where I split out the headers and rejoined them. Did this all with formulas, select, filters.

I feel like I cheated a bit on this challenge because it was one of our training exercises at Data School. So I gave myself the added challenge of finding a different solution to the one we came up with in class!
