In the Transformer page, you can filter data from display in the data grid or from the dataset permanently.
You can apply various tools to remove columns of data and rows based on conditions you define. For more information on how to permanently remove rows and columns of data from the sample and the dataset, see Remove Data.
You can make selections in the data grid interface to filter the sampled data that is displayed in the data grid.
Depending on your current tasks, you may want to hide columns or rows of the sample, so that you can focus on the task at hand.
NOTE: Data grid filters do not remove any data. They can be used to hide data that is not important for the task at hand. The hidden data is still part of the sample and the full dataset.
To show a hidden column, click the Eye icon in the status bar at the bottom of the page. In the Visible Columns panel, click the Eye icon next to the column name. The column is displayed again in the data grid or column browser.
Tip: You can use the Visible Columns panel to toggle the display of single columns or multiple columns at the same time. See Visible Columns Panel.
In the data grid panel, you can apply row- or column-based filters. At the top of the data grid, click Filters. In the drop-down:
Columns: Search for individual columns or filter columns of a specific type. Filtered columns are displayed, and the rest are hidden.
For more information, see Filter Panel.
When you are constructing transforms, the expected results are previewed in the data grid. As needed, you can narrow the display to only the affected rows, columns, or both. Select the appropriate checkbox or checkboxes in the status bar at the bottom of the Transformer page.
For more information, see Data Grid Panel.
