Before proceeding to analyze data in a delimited file, you must first set up the connection to this file.

To create a connection to a delimited file, do the following:

  1. Expand the Metadata folder.

  2. Right-click FileDelimited connections and then select Create File Delimited Connection to open the [New Delimited File] wizard.

  3. Follow the steps defined in the wizard to create a connection to a delimited file.

    You can then create a column analysis and drop the columns to analyze from the delimited file metadata in the DQ Repository tree view to the open analysis editor. For further information, see Creating a basic column analysis on a file.

    For information on how to set up a connection to a database, see Connecting to a database.
