  3. On the Data Sources (data source type) page, click the name of the data source you want to clear or delete.

    The configuration page for the selected data source appears.

  4. In the upper-right corner of the Configuration section, click Delete.
  5. In the Delete Data Source dialog box:
    • To clear all of the existing data from the data source, select Clear Existing Data. This option will not remove the data source from Data Cube.
