First, create a copy of the two first nodes. This can be done using keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.

Step 10: Executing the New Nodes

Execute the new nodes.

Step 11: Opening the Data Viewer

Double-click on the output port to bring up the data viewer.

Step 12: Exploring the Exported and Imported Data

Explore the data that you exported and then imported. Plot "year" on the x-axis and "price" on the y-axis. The plot should match the cleaned data, demonstrating that the data was exported correctly.

Close the viewer when you're done. Congratulations, now you know how to export data using Sympathy for Data!
