When I upload a smaller file to my Data Table will it remove the old data if it exceeds the new?

Options

Hello,,

I'm figuring out data tables slowly and a question I have is if i upload a csv with 200k rows to my data table, then i turn around and upload the same file but it only has 150k rows, will it delete the extra 50k?

thanks,

Spencer

    Hey @Spencer_j

    No, Data Shuttle will not delete rows from DataTable - it will either Add or Update your rows based on your configuration.

    This means that if you uploaded 200k rows, then the next upload was 150k, it would update 150k but leave the other 50k in their original state as there's nothing to update.

    Cheers,

    Genevieve
