How to insert a Calculated Column

One of the greatest features of a visualization tool such as Spotfire is to be able to write custom calculated columns. With Spotfire X, “Add calculated column…” is one of the first options from the data tab. Once the window opens, the interface is identical to the previous versions.

How to replace an existing data table

To replace a data table that is already loaded in Spotfire 10, go to the Data Canvas. From the top left corner, make sure the data table we wish to replace is selected from the drop-down. Then, click Replace and select the new source.

How to reload data

With Spotfire X, the reload button has disappeared from the top taskbar. With this new version, “Reload data” is an option approximately halfway through the Data tab.
