I have a text which I would like to convert a specific xml output. I am having problem creating my specific xml output. Iím not sure if itís even possible with stylus studio. If it is, please let me know. If I can get stylus studio to convert to this specific xml output, I will purchase a copy of the software.

I am trying to create child nodes under a specific node.

My text file looks like this

H10120060126BBS000010000345670000987
S00000001ChrisSmith1234parkrd1234565700004595
G00000001A6800099
G00000001C8700032
A00000001B7800000
T0000000200000001000000001


I need my xml to look like this.

<Root>
<Header>
<Type>H</Type>
<Element>101</Element>
<Element>20060126</Element>
<Element>BBS</Element>
<Element>00001</Element>
<Element>000034567</Element>
<Element>0000987</Element>
</Header>
<Student>

<Name> ChrisSmith </Name>
<Address>1234parkrd </Address>

<Number>00000001</Number>
<Letter_Grade>C</Letter_Grade>
<Numeric_Grade>87</Numeric_Grade>
<Course>00099</Course>
</Grade>
<Additional_Info>
<Number>00000001</Number>
<Letter_Grade>B</Letter_Grade>
<Numeric_Grade>78</Numeric_Grade>
<Course>00000</Course>
</Additional_Info>
</Student>
<Total>
<Number>00000002</Number>
<Count1>00000001</Count1>
<Count2>000000001</Count2>
</Total>

Can you please show me how to create such a specific output using the converttoXML feature in stylus Studio 2006.

Convert-to-XML will do part of the job - it will get the non-XML
file into XML.

You can use XSLT to finish the job, and take the file from relatively
flat XML to XML of any arbitrary complexity.

Here's how:

First, create and save a .conv file with the definitions necessary to
extract the fields from your source file as XML elements.

Then, when you create the XSLT file, use as input the non-XML file,
and check the box on the File|Open dialog that says 'open using
adapter'. This will give you a second dialog that will let you choose
the .conv file with the non-XML to XML definitions that you created.

Now you can manipulate the non-XML using XSLT.

Does this help?
