  2. Browse through the entities in your database connection to reach the Columns folder you want to synchronize with the database.
  3. Right-click the Columns folder and select Reload column list.

    A message will prompt you for confirmation as any change in the database structure may affect the analyses created on these columns from the Talend Studio.
