Some X-Functions for importing third party files (e.g., impHDF5, impNITDM, impMDF) include an Import Structure Only option. If the data files are imported by these X-Functions, and the Import Structure Only option is enabled, this variable can be used to re-import the selected range only by setting to 1.

Description

When you import a dataset and make changes to it, you can use this X-function to access the original version. You can also use this X-Function to re-import the selected data range for some third party data files.
