This example illustrates how to use the nested functions.

Functions:

ItemDescription
ARRAYCONCAT Function Combines the elements of one array with another, listing all elements of the first array before listing all elements of the second array.
ARRAYINTERSECT Function Generates an array containing all elements that appear in multiple input arrays, referenced as column names or array literals.
ARRAYCROSS Function Generates a nested array containing the cross-product of all elements in two or more arrays.
ARRAYUNIQUE Function Generates an array of all unique elements among one or more arrays.

Source:

Code formatting has been applied to improve legibility.

ItemArrayAArrayB
Item1["A","B","C"]["1","2","3"]
Item2["A","B"]["A","B","C"]
Item3["D","E","F"]["4","5","6"]

Transformation:

You can apply the following transforms in the following order. Note that the column names must be different from the transform name, which is a reserved word.

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula ARRAYCONCAT([Letters,Numerals])
Parameter: New column name 'concat2'

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula ARRAYINTERSECT([Letters,Numerals])
Parameter: New column name 'intersection2'

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula ARRAYCROSS([Letters,Numerals])
Parameter: New column name 'cross2'

Transformation Name New formula
Parameter: Formula type Single row formula
Parameter: Formula ARRAYUNIQUE([Letters,Numerals])
Parameter: New column name 'unique2'

Results:

For display purposes, the results table has been broken down into three separate sets of columns.

Column set 1:

ItemArrayAArrayBconcat2intersection2
Item1

["A","B","C"]

 

["1","2","3"]["A","B","C","1","2","3"][ ] 
Item2["A","B"]["A","B","C"]["A","B","A","B","C"]["A","B"]
Item3["D","E","F"]["4","5","6"]["D","E","F","4","5","6"][ ]

Column set 2:

Itemcross2
Item1[["A","1"],["A","2"],["A","3"],["B","1"],["B","2"],["B","3"],["C","1"],["C","2"],["C","3"]]
Item2[["A","A"],["A","B"],["A","C"],["B","A"],["B","B"],["B","C"]]
Item3[["D","4"],["D","5"],["D","6"],["E","4"],["E","5"],["E","6"], ["F","4"],["F","5"],["F","6"]]

Column set 3:

Itemunique2
Item1["A","B","C","1","2","3"]
Item2["A","B","C"]
Item3["D","E","F","4","5","6"]
