Saving a Table as a Dataset Based on the Query

This approach enables you to save a query result as its own dataset. This is helpful when working with subsets of data, sections, or building datasets with self-joins.

When saving a query result as a dataset, follow these steps:

  1. Place the necessary fields on the shelves, and apply functions, sort, order, alias, filters, and so on.
  2. In the Create a materialized table or logical view modal window, fill out these fields:

    1. Enter the Name of the new table. We are using SnP.
    2. Choose the Type: Dataset directly from query.
    3. Under Create in database, choose an existing database where to save the table.
    4. Create a new dataset... option is on; enter the Dataset name.
    5. Click Create.
