Add a preparation to start preparing and cleansing your data.

You can create a preparation from a dataset already available in Talend Data Preparation. When you add a preparation with the corresponding button, it will be created in the folder in which you are currently working. Furthermore, your preparation will automatically be saved in the preparations list, and all the changes you make are also saved automatically.


To create a preparation, you have two options:
  • From the dataset list, point your mouse over the dataset you want to use as source material for a preparation and click the Open preparation button and select Create new preparation.
  • From the preparation list, click the Add preparation button. In the form that opens, give a name to your preparation, select the source dataset that has been created beforehand and click Submit.


Your dataset opens with an empty recipe, and you can start adding preparation steps. All your changes are automatically saved.
