Adding a data table
An analysis can contain more than one data table. Data can be added from local files on your computer, or from different types of data files that have been previously saved in the library using the Windows client. You may also have access to other data sources from where you can add data. The steps below show how to add another data table to your analysis.
Data from different data tables can be viewed in the same visualization, provided that there is at least one column in both data tables that can be used to match the data from the two data tables. You can, of course, also create separate visualizations for different data tables.
- On the toolbar, click Add data, .
- Specify from where to add data.
Browse to the data of interest and add it to the analysis.
Tip: If the data you are about to add matches existing in-memory data in the analysis, then you will be recommended to add the new data as rows in a matching data table, instead of as a new data table. It is often easier to visualize the data if you have a single data table, so use the recommended solution whenever possible. See also Adding rows to a data table.
