When refresh data table, how to modify only some of the source information

When Edit> Data Table Properties> Refresh Data, I want to fix only one device or one content.
It seems to be a lot of time loss because I have to create all new.

I want to refresh the data table by modifying only some of the source information.

    This is possible in Spotfire Analyst and Spotfire Business Author today. Please see this documentation.

    Please see the what's new wiki as reference for the features below. All features are available in the Spotfire Source view. Expand the data panel to see the Source View.

    You can refresh individual data sources from the Source View.

    In Spotfire 7.11 you can replace individual data sources in your data model.

    In 7.12 you can remove a data source in the middle of your data model.

    In 7.13 you can edit your joins.

    In 7.14 you can insert rows, columns and data transformations anywhere in your data model. 

    From the data tables properties dialog you can often edit a data source if you use the Refresh with prompt feature.

    Hope this helps!

    I can not make any sense of you are asking here. What does "create all new" and "modifying only some of the source information" exactly mean? Describe step by step what you are doing and why you are doing it.
