Hi Ron;

  This is not a problem for the JSON Parser. Remember though that you need to treat the parser and  its embedded data like a TreeView or PBDOM data stream. That is you need to navigate through the Parent/Child structures. You can have a root segment - followed by various embedded child segments within the data stream  Therefore you need to get the Root segment - which in your case would be Employee information and then get the child segments and their data. Which in your case would be "Manager" and "Department.

   In order to process this JSON structure, I would suggest having a look at the GetRootItem (), GetChildItem() and GetChildCount() methods to help you navigate the structure that you portrayed.

Hi Chris,


In future can we expect a feature like split JSON Parser to json data objects, apply directly to datawindows and after correction combine the json data objects and send back to the api?
