Opening new editors

It is possible to open new analysis or SQL editors in the Profiling and Data Explorer perspectives respectively.

Before you begin

To be able to use Data Explorer in Talend Studio, you must install certain SQL explorer libraries that are required for data quality. When you do not install these libraries, the Data Explorer perspective is missing from Talend Studio and many features will not be available.

For further information about identifying and installing external modules, see Installing external modules to Talend Studio.

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand the Data Profiling folder.
  2. Right-click the Analysis folder and select New Analysis.

To open an empty new SQL editor from the Data Explorer perspective, do the following:
