EDDIE - Data Sources

Data source types available in EDDIE (HTML Web Intelligence).

  • Universe
  • Web Intelligence document
  • Excel
  • Text

In order to use Excel or Text files, they must first be uploaded to EDDIE.

  • From the Home Screen, click on the Folders tile and navigate to the Personal Folder where you want the file uploaded.
