Set Node and Match Pattern


Convert to XML is available only in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite.

You use the Set Node and Match Pattern dialog box to work with nodes (row element name/match pattern pairs) in the Convert to XML adapters you define. When you define a node, only those rows in the input file that match the pattern you specify using a regular expression in the Match Pattern field are converted to XML (using the row element name you specify in the Row Element Name field).


Row Element Name

Specifies the name you want to use for rows in the file to be converted to XML that match the pattern you specify in the Match Pattern field.

Match Pattern

The regular expression you want to use to match rows from the non-XML file you are converting to XML. To learn more about regular expression syntax, visit
