JSON web services from Eurostat

Eurostat provides you with a method to connect to their public data via JSON-STAT

 

Here is the "How-To" from Eurostat

 

Now I've created my URL and what I did was basically the same way as always.

 

Get Data - From Web - Paste the URL and OK

 

The result I get is thiseurostatResult.PNG

 

 

 

 

 

All the values are stored in the value Records and the dimensions are stored in another Record. I need to create a table where the values are aligned with the dimensions (Time and Location)

 

This is the desired outputeurostatResultOutput.PNG

 

 

 

 

After going back and forth in trying to get a table from this URL, I simply can't. 

 

I suspect that I need to tweak something in Advanced Editor but my lack of M-formula knowledge is not helping.

 

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated !

Re: JSON web services from Eurostat

I'd use the 'unicode' version of the query in this case (http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/wdds/rest/data/v2.1/unicode...)

 

The JSON query basically needs serializing and cumbersome.
