    Matrix > Input > Data Selection

  3. On this screen, select:
    • Select Input Source — Users may select between different sources of input. By selecting Table, the user can select from available databases, tables (or views) and columns in the usual manner. By selecting Analysis, however, the user can select directly from the output of another analysis of qualifying type in the current project. Analyses that may be selected from directly include all of the Analytic Data Set (ADS) and Reorganization analyses (except Refresh). In place of Available Databases, the user may select from Available Analyses, while Available Tables then contains a list of all the output tables that will eventually be produced by the selected analysis. Note that since this analysis cannot select from a volatile input table, Available Analyses contains only those qualifying analyses that create an output table or view. For more information, see INPUT Tab in the Teradata Warehouse Miner User Guide (Volume 1), B035-2300.
