An email address, such as user@talend.com, is made up of two parts separated by the @ symbol: the local part (user in this example) and the domain part (talend.com in this example).

The two parts of an email address can be extracted and copied to two new columns.


  1. Select a column containing email addresses.
  2. In the Functions panel, type Extract Email Parts and point your mouse over the function name to preview the result of the Extract Email Parts function.
  3. Click the result to execute the Extract Email Parts function.


The local part and the domain part are extracted from the email addresses. The extracted data is put into two new columns.
Tip: This transformation can also be performed by using the Magic fill function.
