The first step in analyzing the content of one or multiple columns is to define the column(s) to be analyzed. The analysis results provides statistics about the values within each column.
When you select to analyze Date columns and run the analysis with the Java engine,
the date information is stored in the Talend Studio
and in the datamart as regular date/time
YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss.SSS for
date/timestamp and of format
for time. The date and time formats are slightly different when you run the analysis
with the SQL engine.
Before you begin, you have defined at least one connection to a delimited file the Profiling perspective of Talend Studio.
