Remove Empty Columns - WhiteSpace Error


#1

Hi,
I used the “Remove Empty Columns” transformation (empty values and whitespace) and it removed columns where there are values.
When I just selected the empty values (and not whitespace), it worked as expected.
Can you help me explain why this happens?
Rob


#2

The help article on this transformation has been updated to explain how it works: http://help.easymorph.com/doku.php?id=transformations:removeemptycolumns

If it doesn’t answer your question, please provide an example where its behavior is not clear.

Thanks,
D.

Just following up here - if there is a visible number/text in any row of a particular column, that column should NOT be removed if I select option two (“Remove columns where all values are empty or whitespace”) - is that correct?


#4

Yes, that’s correct. If there is at least one visible value in a column that column won’t be removed in any case.
