    Generate many XML files

    Hi guys,

    Wondering if any one out their has a solution to my query... I need to generate many (100+) variations of an XML file and was wondering if their is any tool (freeware) out there that you can use - was thinking of doing it in VBA(?)

    Depends what your starting point is.

    If you've got access to SQL Server you could write a cursor with a stored procedure call.

      Have you already got the schema and data, or are you supposed to be mocking up an output?
      I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

        Sounds like the sort of thing a python script should handle.

          If it's Windows then I'm pretty sure you can do it with VBScript with Windows Scripting Host.
          Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

            Pretty vague request.

            What is the source data?

            When you say variations, do you mean variations of the data or variations of the structure?

              You can do this with almost any programming language or scripting language.

              in a simple case you could even do it with text in excel.

                  Perl was designed specifically for this kind of thing.

                    What UnixMan said. ^
                    And the lord said unto John; "come forth and receive eternal life." But John came fifth and won a toaster.
