When you are finished preparing your dataset based on a local file, you may want to export the data you have cleansed.


  1. Click the Export button in the application header bar.
  2. Choose the file format you want to use when exporting your data:
    • If you choose Local CSV file, select which field delimiter, text enclosure and escape characters to use and enter a name for the file to export.
    • If you choose Local XLSX file, choose a name for the file to export.
    • If you choose Local TABLEAU file, choose a name for the file to export.

    • If you choose Amazon S3, enter your credentials and other information to store your file on Amazon S3.
  3. Click Confirm.


The export operation is processed on the Talend Data Preparation server.

If the result of your preparation is larger than your current sample size, 10 000 rows by default, you can choose between exporting just the sample, or the whole data. In the first case, your download of the output file directly starts. In the second case, the export process is launched in the background. You can check the status of the export, and download your output file in the Export history page. For more information, see The export history page.
