Import XML Files Directly

JMP can detect the structure of an XML or JSON file and import it directly into a data table. If you don’t want to see a preview of the data in the XML Import Wizard, use this method.

1. On Windows:

Select File > Open.

Set the file type to Data Files.

Select the file.

Next to Open as, select Data (Best Guess).

2. On Mac:

Select File > Open and select the file.

Click Options on the lower left corner of the window.

Select Data (Best Guess).

3. Click Open.

The file opens as a data table.

If you are not satisfied with the results, consider using the XML Import Wizard to customize the import. See Import XML Files Directly.
