Practice: Modify This Data

It all comes down to personal preference. As you may have noticed, you can get the same results either by using just project Notebook, or just the StudioX activities, or by combining the two. Can you share an example of a scenario that you face in which you need to modify the data you are using?

I loved this challenge. I used a combination of both the StudioX activities and the project Notebook. Equally made all the changes in a single run.

This activity was wonderful. I worked as a training administrator and had to combine data from two different types of training rosters into a single common database (i.e., Excel spreadsheet). This activity would have saved me days of time!

It’s stated, the same result could be achieved without using the project notebook. But how would you solve the numbers challenge (2. keep just two decimals) with activities?

Am I the only one missing a right trim of the quote and a left trim of the author in the solution provided?

You are right! Trimming was not done in the solution provided but should have been done.
So no, you’re not alone :slight_smile:

Adding a Modify Text (Left Trim at [CurrentRow] Author) and a Modify Text (Right Trim at [CurrentRow] Quote) would do the job, but is/are there more elegant way of doing similar? Thank you in advance.
