How to post a question

If you are posting a question about how to transform a dataset, please include a short example of the input dataset you have and the corresponding output dataset you want.

For each dataset (in decreasing order of preference) you can either:

  1. (Input dataset only) Create a new Easy Data Transform .transform file, paste your data into a clipboard item, save as a .transform file and upload the file in your post. The maximum size uploadable to the forum is ~2MB.
