Note: As we continue to transition from Data360 Analyze Script to the widely-used Python language, many of our nodes that previously used Data360 Analyze Script have been superseded by new Python-based nodes. You may have used some of these superseded nodes in data flows that were created in earlier versions of the product. Although the superseded nodes are still available for backwards compatibility, it is recommended that where possible you now use the new Python-based nodes, see the Migration Guide (available from Zendesk) for more information. For more information on working with the Python-based nodes, see Transform and Python scripting.

If you are a Notepad++ user, you can enable keyword highlighting to aid you when writing Data360 Analyze Script.
