Renaming Rows


I have a data set that has multiple rows all with the same name but different data for each row. I want a way to have a flow or beast mode that searches a column for all the rows with the same name and then if they have the same name it will append a number sequence to the rows name to distinguish it from other rows of the same name with different data.

    This doesn't sound like something beast mode would be good for.  You could potentially do this in a dataflow with declarign a local variable and looping on the repeats, but you'd be creating a new dataset that lives alongside your original data since you can't overwrite the original data (that I'm aware).  Would that be something you're ok with?  If not, you'd probably need to use the Domo API and see if you can overwrite data programmatically.
