Subject:Transform FF into XML w/ new content added Author:Rick Scofield Date:10 Mar 2006 03:03 PM
Hello, I'm new to StylusStudio but have worked with other mapping tools like Altovia and Contivo.
Does anyone provide any help on how to get started transforming an FF as input into file that has additional content. For example I have a FF (attached) 'UPCOptions.txt' that provides inventory availability. I need to create an output file that looks like (attached) 'WebOptions.xls'
So for each style (loop), for each color (loop) and write to new file with added text elements. The transformation path would be something like UPCOptions.txt -->UPCOptions.xml --> WebOptions.xls

UPOptions.txt -> UPOptions.xml
- Create a new Convert to XML document (File -> New -> COnvert To XML)
- Select UPOptions.txt as input file select "fixed width" as general layout
- After the file is loaded right click on the first
row on the B letter and click "Begin Field in This Column";
do the same for all required fields.
See the attached screenshot UPCConv.png
Once the converter is created it can be used as input of XSLT transformation.
I created one for you to play, please copy UPC.conv to
c:\Program Files\Stylus Studio 2006 Release XML Enterprise Edition\Adapter
To generate the final result do the following
- save WebOptions.xls as CSV (Comma Separated Values) using Microsoft Excel and named it WebOptions.csv
- Create a new XLT Mapper
- set as source adapter:/UPC.conv
- set as target c:\Temp\UPC\WebOptions.csv
- click on the ... in the toolbar and set the output URL to
then you can start to map from left to right; the information that are not coming from UPOptions.txt need to be coded in XSLT
I attached a full project, you just need to unzip the archive in C:\TEMP.

Ivan, sorry one other question please...how did you come up with the output URL: adapter:CSV:newline=crlf:encoding=utf-8:sep=,:first=yes:escape=\:quotes='":number=no?file:///c:/Temp/UPC/WebOptions-out.csv
