I’ve chosen text files in my connection, but cannot save and begin working with them

If you’ve selected files for use in your job but cannot click the save button, it’s likely because the text file does not have a defined schema. Text files must have their properties defined before they can be used as sources of data. Select the file(s) to be used, then click the Properties button beside each file to configure. Within the properties window you will decide your file schema. File schemas are subjective to how the data within the file is ordered. The properties window allows you to confirm things like delimiters and column properties, so data is displayed as it was intended. In most cases, clicking “next, next, finish” will work to configure the schema.
