Updating Data Across Cells

Updating Data Across Cells

Based on the requirement and data coverage, you can update data across cells to add data where you need it or remove excess data. The data is updated in the
data set
when you edit data across cells in the data coverage task.
Based on the schema, a move operation might fail in some cases. You cannot update data in a cell that contains data of the Blob data type.
  1. Open the
    data set
    that contains the data coverage task that you want to edit.
  2. Click the
    Data Coverage
    tab.
  3. Click the data coverage task that you want to edit.
    The data coverage page opens. The graph displays the results of the last analysis that you performed.
  4. Select the cell on the graph to which you want to add data. The cell is highlighted with a green border.
  5. Right-click the selected cell and click
    Fill
    .
    The
    Fill Cell
    dialog box opens.
  6. Select the source cell from which you want to move data on the graph. You can select multiple source cells.
    The
    Fill Cell
    dialog box lists the source cells that you select and suggests the number of rows to move. You can enter a different number.
  7. Enter the number of rows that you want to move from each source cell.
  8. Click
    Fill
    .
    A separate job runs to fill data from each of the source cells.
  9. If the data contains fields that need input, a dialog box opens with fields to enter the data. Enter the data and click
    OK
    .
    The data from the source cells is edited to fill the selected cell. If you close the task before the user input dialog box appears, the job pauses. When you open the task, you must click the
    User Input
    button to view and enter the required data.
You can verify that the data is updated correctly after the task completes. Click the
Analyze
button without making any changes to the task. The results plotted on the graph must not change.
