Updating individual rows- dataset

user000253 βšͺ️


I have used an excel upload for my dataset, and want to know if it is possible to make changes to individual rows within DOMO using Magic ETL or another function?

For example, if I need to update a specific field within a row, without having to make the change offline and reuploading the dataset.

    You can't edit an uploaded datasets directly in Domo, but there are other ways to change the data. In Magic ETL, you can use various tiles to replace data based on certain criteria. You can also join to another dataset in Magic ETL that has the correct data and use the columns from that dataset in your final output.

    Typically one doesn't update individual rows of data once it's stored in Domo.

    Mark is correct you can transform the entire dataset (and just define your transformation to target an individual row) ... but that's typically not how Domo was intended to be used.

    Depending on your degree of expertise you may just want to reupload your data.

    Alternative work arounds people use include

    1) use a Domo Webform (it mimics the user experience with Google Sheets)

    2) use Google Sheets as an input dataset (instead of Excel file)

    3) convert your Excel spreadsheet into a webform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysUHYaICYD8 ** not for the faint of heart
