Hey all,
First time poster here, but i've lurked on the site for a while.
I'm looking to import an XML in to Excel but i'm having issues with it.

I've used the Import wizard and feel like i'm most of the way, but i'm missing something probably simple.
The XML is a few hundred records and has several rows, so a manual copy and paste job isn't really viable for me.

The XML i am trying to import is the XML for a game that i need statistics from, and because i believe it is full of tables i'm struggling to access.

So opening the XML, gets me here

And i can see most of the information, until i go further across and start to see the value "table" is shown for most of the cells.

At the bottom the query is pulled from the correct table, and if i double click i see the individual value, however i would like to it too pull every and every value that says table in one clear spreadsheet.

I'm sure it's very simple, but after googling i can't seem to get a simple answer.
Thanks in advanc,

I've expanded the columns, inside 3 columns some of the values (Not all) still hold the value "Table" even though the column doesn't seem that i can expand it any further.

I can post a screenshot if that helps?

Thanks for this, It's very close to what i'm looking for.
However it's not very readable? It seems to have put to put every new column on a new line

Is there any way to have this easier to read?

this is expanded xml via Developer

here is expanded xml via PQ with a few million rows and over 100 columns

PQ xml import
you need change path to xml source for PQ to yours

with both above you should decide what you remove, filter, group, etc and clean data (because I don't know that)
