Stanley BowlingSubject: Flat File Custom XML conversion help
Author: Stanley Bowling
Date: 28 Sep 2010 10:06 AM
Hello,

We have a flat file coming from our source system which represents child nodes as new lines in the same file. The child nodes can be identified by the first two characters of the line.
I need help to get the child nodes attached to the parent xml node. Can you help me figure out how this can be done. I have attached an example and the progress so far.

As in the example attached, the contact is displayed outside the customer,
<Customer>
<Type>A</Type>
<Number>1000</Number>
<FirstName>Casey</FirstName>
<LastName>Adams</LastName>
</Customer>
<Contact>
<ContactType>#C</ContactType>
<Number>585-433-1233</Number>
</Contact>
<Customer>...
I require the contact region to display as a child of customer like this.
<Customer>
<Type>A</Type>
<Number>1000</Number>
<FirstName>Casey</FirstName>
<LastName>Adams</LastName>
<Contact>
<ContactType>#C</ContactType>
<Number>585-433-1233</Number>
</Contact>
</Customer>
<Customer>...
