XML import only imports first line

Hi,

 

I am trying to import a .xml into Power Query in Excel. The file has the following structure:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="retainvarsexport.xsl"?>
<Recipe Version="1.0">
<Header>
<Type>retainvarsexport</Type>
<Name></Name>
<Count>18095</Count>
<Modified>2021-07-20T10:59:00</Modified>
<ProjectName>Project 1</ProjectName>
<ProjectVersion>3.x.55.0</ProjectVersion>
<GeneratorName>Epam4</GeneratorName>
<GeneratorVersion>1.2.0.10733</GeneratorVersion>
</Header>
<Body>
<Variable Name="Variable 1" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 2" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 3" Type="BOOL">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 4" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 5" Type="REAL">0</Variable

<Variable Name="Variable 6" Type="BOOL">0</Variable>
</Body>
</Recipe>

 

When I import the file into Power Query, I only get the following:

Ben_Ges_0-1629448798205.pngBen_Ges_1-1629448831875.png

 

Unfortunately I am not able to import the variables. 

 

When I change the code to this:

<Body>
<Variable Name="Variable 1" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 2" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 3" Type="BOOL">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 4" Type="BYTE">0</Variable>
<Variable Name="Variable 5" Type="REAL">0</Variable

<Variable Name="Variable 6" Type="BOOL">0</Variable>
</Body>

 

I am able to import the data in the way I want:

Ben_Ges_2-1629449034406.pngBen_Ges_3-1629449052459.png

 

It works, but I need to change the code in the .xml. 

Is there a way to import the data without modifying the code?

 

I look forward to suggestions. 

And sorry if this question seems foolish, I am totally new to Power Query... 😄

In your first pic, just click on the word Table in the Body column to drill to your variables.

Hi Pat,

 

I have a similar problem. But I would like to import all tables (not only variables of one column). My xml file is structured hierarchical containing lots of tables. 

 

Is there a simple way to import all tables?

 

Best regards, Jacob

Hi, did you solve this? Can you share how?

@mahoneypat, it worked. Thank you. 🙂
