copying data from existing data table

Hi Emma,

Do you mean the person created an information link, added that to their Spotfire analysis and then copied the information link to create a 2nd information link and added that to Spotfire Or is it that they added the information link and then copied the table from that information link inside Spotfire to create a new table (which is a copy of the first table)

Thanks

Colin

Hi Emma,

If they copied the information to join it to another information link, then a reason I would normally see this happens is if you want to alter the copied information link so it no longer matches the original. The converse is also true as they may wantto protect this copy from changes to the original for instance also. However, you can use the same information link as many times you like in your Spotfire analysis so unless you need two versions, you would not normally create a copy.

Another option is to use the information link once in your Spotfire analysis, and then you can actually copy the data table inside Spotfire without needing to call the information link again. The advantage of this method is it only needs to call the information link once (which may help with network/data performance) and it also means that any changes made to the original data table in Spotfire are copied to the copy of the table also.

The advantage of pulling the same information link into Spotfire twice is that it allows you to keep the tables completely separate and changes to each table do not affect each other.

Hope this helps

Colin
