Adding Data

You can add data from a flat file into your Arcadia Instant instance. Arcadia Instant processes this data as a new table, adding it to an existing data repository. You can then use it as a source of supplemental information for existing datasets, by creating new table joins. You can also create a new dataset that references the imported data as a primary table.

Typically, we use the Import Data functionality to supplement existing datasets; we add this data by creating joins in the data model.

Depending on your business case, you may instead choose to create a new dataset based on the data you just imported.

Availability Note. Data Import is only available on Arcadia and SQLite connections.
Tip. If you must import data stored in Excel format, see Preparing Excel Files for Data Import.

Arcadia Instant supports two forms of data sources:
