To import new data:
NOTE: For file-based sources, expects that each row of data in the import file is terminated with a consistent newline character, including the last one in the file.
Connect to the source of your data:
NOTE: Compressed files are recognized and can be imported based on their file extensions.
Upload: can also load files from your local file system.
Tip: You can drag and drop files from your desktop to to upload them.
NOTE: You can upload a file up to 100 MB in size.
For more information on the supported input formats, see Supported File Formats.
When you have found your source directory or file, click the Plus icon next to its name to add it as a dataset.
Tip: You can import multiple datasets at the same time. See below.
Excel files: Click the Plus icon next to the parent workbook to add all of the worksheets as a single dataset, or you can add individual sheets as individual datasets.
Tip: If you experience issues uploading XLS/XLSX files that are larger than 35MB, you can convert the files to CSV files and then upload them.
See Import Excel Data.
Dataset Description: You may add an optional description that provides additional detail about the dataset. This information is visible in some areas of the interface.
Tip: Click the Eye icon to inspect the contents of the dataset prior to importing.
You can select a single dataset or multiple datasets for import.
You can modify settings used during import for individual files. In the card for an individual dataset, click Edit Settings.
NOTE: In some cases, there may be discrepancies between row counts in the previewed data versus the data grid after the dataset has been imported, due to rounding in row counts performed in the preview.
Per-file encoding: By default, attempts to interpret the encoding used in the file. In some cases, the data preview panel may contain garbled data, due to a mismatch in encodings. In the Data Preview dialog, you can select a different encoding for the file. When the correct encoding is selected, the preview displays the data as expected.
If you have selected a single dataset for import:
You can import multiple datasets from multiple sources at the same time. In the Import Data page, continue selecting sources, and additional dataset cards are added to the right panel.
NOTE: If you are importing from multiple files at the same time, the files are not necessarily read in a regular or predictable order. Avoid using functions such as SOURCEROWNUMBER, which relies on original row numbers. See SOURCEROWNUMBER Function.
In the right panel, you can see a preview of each dataset and make changes as needed.
