|MS Excel||In TBC, double click on Excel documents or use Import Excel File into Spreadsheet Ontology. In TopBraid EDG/EVN, use one of Import Spreadsheet options. Also available with any of Import RDF modules and as sml:ImportExcelCellInstances.||MS Excel (supports xls and xlsx formats)|
|Tab-delimited or comma-separated text||In TBC, use Semantic Tables (CSV/TSV Documents) – double click to open or use Import Tab-Delimited Spreadsheet File wizard. In TopBraid EDG/EVN, use one of Import Spreadsheet options. Also available with any of Import RDF modules.|
|XML and XSD||In TBC, double click on XML documents or use Import XML Schema wizard. Also available as sml:ImportXMLFile and sml:ImportXMLFromURL modules.|
|XHTML||In TBC, double click on the document to open. Also available as sml:ImportXHTML module.|
|RDF Documents||In TBC, double click on the document to open. In TopBraid EDG/EVN use Import RDF options to load a file. Also available as several Import RDF modules.||RDF/XML, Turtle, N-Triple and JSON-LD serializations. From a URL or a file system|
|SQL DDL files||In TopBraid EDG, use an option under Imports for data assets. Also available as sml:ConvertDDLToRDF module.|
