    Sorry - misread this the first time around. For a json DATA file, you can use the "array of records" format. Here is a 2 record sample:

    [
    {
    "Order ID":3,
    "Order Date":"10/14/2006",
    "Ship Mode":"Regular Air",
    "Profit":-213.25,
    "Unit Price":38.94,
    },
    {
    "Order ID":6,
    "Order Date":"2/21/2008",
    "Ship Mode":"Regular Air",
    "Profit":-4.64,
    "Unit Price":2.08,
    }
    ]

    We will write up something to explain the JSON file formats and how to export/import them. For now, the recommended way is to EXPORT of the standard files (for palettes, tours, palettes, or themes), follow the pattern you see for changes/additions, and then IMPORT the file. When IMPORTED, it will named with a .json file extension - a marker that the file is a user-defined file.
