Queries on Local Files

In the ClickHouse-based Analytics Workspace and any connected DuckDB database, you can easily query local files with SQL. You can query CSV, JSON, Parquet & more.

If you don’t want to write queries by hand, consider to instead attach the file as a source to the Analytics Workspace. This allows you to use the AI Assistant and the data explorer UI for your file.
