Importing, Exporting, and Querying Data

To store or analyze electronic data, the data must be in a format that a software application recognizes. In many cases, you can import data from an external format that your application recognizes, or you can export data to a format that is compatible with a different software application, provided that your specific software application supports these features.

Importing Data

After you connect to the data source and have imported the data, you can perform data analysis tasks such as formatting and querying.
