Supported File Formats

This section contains information on the fie formats and compression schemes that are supported for input to and output of Cloud Dataprep by TRIFACTA®.

NOTE: To work with formats that are proprietary to a desktop application, such as Microsoft Excel, you do not need the supporting application installed on your desktop.

Native Input File Formats

  • Excel (XLS/XLSX), upload only

    Tip: You may import multiple worksheets from a single workbook at one time. See Import Excel Data.

  • CSV
  • JSON, including nested

    NOTE: Cloud Dataprep by TRIFACTA requires that JSON files be submitted with one valid JSON object per line. Consistently malformed JSON objects or objects that overlap linebreaks might cause import to fail. See Initial Parsing Steps.

  • Plain Text
