How To Decipher Package Data in sysssispackages Created by SQLS Server 2012 Import/Export Wizard

How can I decipher the packagedata field in the sysssispackages table in the msdb database? The packages were created to import Access 2010 database tables using the SQL Server 2012 Import/Export Wizard.

What you mean with "Decipher"?

If you're talking about the PackageData column I think you can see it as html:
SELECT *, CAST(CAST([packagedata] as varbinary(max)) as xml)
FROM sysssispackages
