    Note: If you want to modify any of the rules held in the rule files, do the following:
    • For a Drools file, open the file in Talend Studio and modify the rules directly in the open file.
    • For an Excel file, open the file locally and carry out necessary modifications. Then in the Repository tree view and under Rules, right-click the file connection and select Update Xls file in the contextual menu.
    Warning: If you modify a rule, you must close the Job using the rule and reopen it to take into accounts the new modifications.
