dir = Pick Directory( "Select a directory" );
//get all file names under the folder
files = Files In Directory( dir, Recursive );
nfiles = N Items( files );
For( i = 1, i <= N Items( files ), i++,
	fullfile = dir || files[i];
	dt = Open(
		fullfile,
		Worksheets( "Intensity" ),
		Use for all sheets( 0 ),

You can select the worksheet you want, when you select the file to open, and then click on the down arrow for the "Open". and select "Open Selected Worksheets".

If you choose the "Use Excel Wizard" it will allow you to select multiple sheets to open at the same time.

Re: JMP14 How can i import multi excel files with defined sheet?

Hi

thanks a lot for your reply.

My questions is about new function " import multiple files" in JMP14.

I have more than 10 same structure Excel files which i want to extract some data and stack them together.

For each excel file, there are more than one sheet.

When i use this function, it also extract the data from the first sheet, how can i get the data in second sheet in each excel file?

thanks, Ordon.

I already use the "for" funcition to do it now.

and give up the function"import multi files ".

Hi juna1,

is that mean you have to import every single file from given directory manually? It's a pity there is no option to do it via "import multi files" function and jsl.

Hi @juna1 

What was your final solution to this problem? You mention that you use the "loop" statement. Would it be possible to provide an example of your code?

Thanks
