Nestor BucoskySubject: Does anyone use XML from ADO Wizard

Does anyone use XML from ADO Wizard ?

What I would like to do is create an xml file from a Microsoft Access Table and try to map that xml file to another xml file.

Theoretically, I could use Stylus Studio to do this mapping. I had several problems with the xml file generated using the ADO wizard.


1) In the data portion of the xml file, only half of the columns came out.

2) The xmlfile uses names spaces and several of the namespaces were "UUID" #'s. I want to apply these files in a UNIX environment and UUID #'s may not work.

3) If I were to use the "ADO" feature in SS, I need to be able to do this in a "batch" mode and not manually.

I would appreciate any assistance

Thanks

Hi Nestor,
sorry for the late reply, but it looks like the software managing the board ate my previous reply....

Can you list the data type of the columns that didn't appear in the XML file (maybe ADO could not map them into XML data types...)
Can you tell us the version of ADO you are using (look at the version properties of the file C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\ADO\msado15.dll)
In any case, can you attach/send us an empty Access table with the same structure you are using?

Why shouldn't they work? The namespace URIs are just unique identifier; they don't have any system-specific meaning.

You can do it; you can create a small program in the language of your choice (VBScript, JScript, C++...) and drive the ADO conversion.

Hope this helps,
Alberto

I appreciate your help...

1) The data type of the columns that didn't appear in the XML file were the same as the columns which did appear namely "Text"

The version of ADO that I was using was (VERSION 2.60.6526.0)

I am attaching an Access database with just the single table. Everytime I generate the xml file, a different # of columns are created in the data section. All the columns appear in the "AttributeTypes".


thanks again

Nestor


Applicationss.mdb
DB with single Access tbl with 2 rows

Hi Nestor,
thanks for the testcase.

It looks like the fields that ADO doesn't write in the generated XML are
NULL fields (that is, they don't even contain an empty string).
If you need the XML to have empty entries for the missing column, you
should either change the database schema not to allow NULL values, or be
sure to enter empty strings in those fields.

Hope this helps,

Alberto
