6 Loading, Extracting, and Clearing Data

This topic describes how to load, extract, or clear data:

  • Load data – prepare a delimited flat file to load data into a model in your application

  • Extract data – backs up all or part of your data that’s already in your application

  • Clear data - removes all or part of the data in your application.

These three options work together as part of the data validation process. As a best practice, always extract your data as a backup before clearing data and reloading.

You can load or extract data either through the user interface or by using the command line-based File Transfer Utility. To use the File Transfer Utility, see Use the File Transfer Utility.
