Can I have several uaccet table whose struct is same?
For example, I have a struct like this :
I import JSON file to 'Content Browser' -> 'Import As" (DataTable) -> MonsterData, then I can read this data table.
My question is... Can I have more than one table which 'DataTable Row Type' is same? Because several game designers work his or her Monster json file, I want to split these json files like this, 'MonsterVillege.json', 'MonsterCastle.json', 'MonsterCave.json'. When I import several json files, it's ok but, UDataTable has data from only first json file and ignore the rest files. Should I merge all json files into one big file or anything suggesstions?
Or can I make 'Data Table' have several 'Source File'?
In direct answer to your question, yes you can have more than one table with the same DataTable row type. Try it and see.
However taking a step back, do you need to? JSON is text; it doesn't need to be "split" to have several contributors work at the same time. If you are using a source control system, many people may edit the contents of the same file at the same time. When checking work back in the changes will be merged with one another. If separate parts of the file are edited by each person, this merge process should be completely automatic. My recommendation would be to bang 'em into one file and job done.
NB. FWIW Importing multiple JSON files works in editor 4.16.2; hilight the multiple files in explorer and drag to the contents pane.
