   Re: [xml-dev] Converting data to XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

you still have to have a reasonable mapping, and that's still a manual

extract these fields with these tags... split this field into these
fields with this tag.... multiply these two fields and out with this tag
etc.... this table should be this info set, these three tables mak ethat
one, etc.. unless i've missed something it seems as easy as trying to
communicate with someone who doesn't speak your language
