Open an object

You can open an object in its designated 1010data Insights Platform tool or choose to open and interact with it in other ways.

The Insights Platform provides many options for viewing and interacting with objects. By default, the Object Manager opens an object in its designated tool. You also have the option of viewing and interacting with an object in other ways. For example, tables may be configured to open in the Trillion-Row Spreadsheet by default. However, as needed, you could choose to open a table in the Macro Language Workshop instead.

To open an object:

  1. In the Object Manager, navigate to the object you want to open.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Double-click anywhere in that object's row.
      The Object Manager will open the object in the Insights Platform tool designated in your association settings. For more information, see Associations.
      Note: If the object does not open after you double-click it, the object association for the object type may not be defined. To set the default object association, see Define object associations.
    • Right-click the object and select the appropriate option from the menu.

      Options in the menu vary and are based on the object type. For a list of available menu options, see Object actions by type.

    The Insights Platform opens the object in the appropriate tool.
