Chris BartlettSubject: Can I do this with Stylus?

Hi All,

I am trying to find out if Stylus studio can solve my problems:

1) I have large scale XML files with quite complex tree structure and many attributes (average size of XML is about 150MB)
2) I need to extract some tables from XML with selected columns and export it to Access .mdb
3) I need to add keys from the parent attribute values as extra columns to the exported tables

Basically that's it. can I do this with Stylus?

Hi Chris,
Stylus Studio can easily handle your 150Mb file (we tested with XML documents up to 1Gb). As for moving parts of this document to Access, I would use XQuery or XSLT to do the filtering and shaping the result to conform to a structure like


that can be imported into Access using either the UI or programmatically by running a script like

Const acAppendData = 2
Set objAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")
objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\Scripts\Test.mdb"
objAccess.ImportXML "c:\scripts\test.xml", acAppendData

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa139956%28office.10%29.aspx for more informations on the Access side.

Hope this helps,

Thank you Alberto.

Still, the problem with large files remains. Even though I have managed to load it (not a very big - about 190MB), it is hardly manageable and Stylus Studio crashed a few times. is there a way to split large XML with Stylus? I am trying to find a simple and quick solution without coding a custom splitter myself.

Any suggestions?

Hi Chris,
which version of Stylus Studio are you using?
Can you cause a crash and send the error report to stylus-field-report@progress.com (which a zipped copy of the XML, if possible)?

As for splitting the file in chunks, there is no such a feature in Stylus, as the logic behind splitting is usually non-standard and depends on the capabilities of the application reading that XML.
