Update Dataset Documentation Based on a Data File¶
If you have documented a dataset in Colectica but the contents of the dataset have changed, you can update the metadata from the dataset without the need to redocument everything.
Navigate to a dataset.
On the ribbon, click Update from File.
Colectica will automatically update your metadata with changes from the dataset. A message will indicate what changes, if any, have been made.
The Update from File command only updates the variable-level metadata. You may also wish to recompute the summary statistics.
