Arten Science Releases R10Clean 2 Professional - Data Cleaning Solution

February 24, 2009 in Utility (E)

[] Derbyshire, UK - Arten Science has announced R10Clean Version 2 Professional is now out of Beta and available to purchase.

What Is It?
A powerful tool for working with, manipulating, de-duplicating and cleaning large amounts of data.

Who Is It For?
If you are working with databases then unless you are a programmer it is usually far easier to extract the data and work with it in the familiar column / row format when the data needs to be checked and / or cleaned.

If working in Marketing and buying in lists for mail-merge purposes, R10Clean gives you the facilities you need to make the data clean and consistent, before you put it into your database.

An IT Systems Integrator may be responsible for transferring data from a legacy system to a newer more modern solution. R10Clean will be invaluable for tidying up those export files.

Data Controllers, Report Writers, IT Departments, DBA's - anyone who has to deal with data on a regular basis.

R10Clean can open the following kinds of files:
* Tab Delimited
* Comma Separated
* Text

R10Clean can save in the following formats:
* Excel (XLS)
* Tab Delimited
* Comma Separated
* Text
* Custom Delimited

R10Clean supports the following Actions:
* Remove
* Replace
* Find
* Insert
* Format

Each Action has several associated Tasks. Generally speaking each task will manipulate the data for the selected rows and either the selected column, or all columns. There are some exceptions however. As you select each Task the scope of the Task is shown on the lower right hand side of the screen.

Some of the included Tasks are detailed below:

Action: Remove
