Re: XML-Dev: Getting the value of the xmlns attribute
Greetings Mark & all u other VBXML'ers, PERSONAL INTRODUCTION - BIN IF NOT INTERESTED boy i'm glad to have this mailing list - i'm real excited that a specific list has been set up for VB & XML. Anyway i'll just introduce myself, then i'll go straight to the website 'projects area' and then contribute as much as i can to the mailing list. Hi, i'm Neil Evans-Mudie originally from the Isle Of Man now a resident of Sheffield, England (as in Steel and cutlery!!). I work for a software house called Fretwel-Downing Data Systems (http://www.fdgroup.co.uk). I'm interested in using XML within, what we call, the Further Education market To enable data exchange between our back office systems. I'm trying to do this with VB, MSXML.DLL, MTS, MSMQ and SQL-Server using shape extensions to ADO/SQL. I come from a Geographical Info. Systems and VB background (I used to teach GIS at Uni.). Anyway i'm pretty sporty and a generally jovial character (I think). So there u go - looking forward to participating in the VBXML community.
