I'm trying to figure out a way to import data (but not export to, I'm just trying to get their news section) from an external db (SqlServer 2000 or 2005) to a gridview and detailsview on my site (resides at a web host). I spoke to the organisation that owns the external db and they are willing to look into several solutions, whitout giving out their db password etc.
Not suprisingly, I was reccomended using a web service. However, I believe I need to install stuff in order to enable one, and so, it won't be able for me (I guess), because of my web host's limitations. Instead, I am now t...trouble with reading from XML then saving to DB because of XML format

Hi All (and a happy holiday to those that will get a break),
I am trying to read in an XML file of addresses. I need to remove all
the address data from the file where code =~ /^000/ (there are none
in the example data below). I need to reproduce that data 'as is', so
I need to honour the tag structure, although the order of the tags
doesn't need to be honoured.
I have been trying to use XML::Simple and I had a go with XML::Smart
but I haven't been able to get the results I want.
My best effort is below (with XML::Simple). There are a couple of
differences ...XMl to XML
I retrieved an XML from the dataset which retrieves data from the table in the database. I need to present the data in a different structure. Is XSLT the way or are there any other options.

I have 4 web pages that are XML/XSLT pages.

Some individual content that is unique to each page goes here.
The "anotherXMLdoc.xml" file would be the content that I need displayed on all 4 pages.

I'm trying to convert Classic ASP pages into ASP.NET. I have used quite a few XML files as datastores for a low-hit website where they work magnificently in Classic ASP.
I have searched the web and cannot find a simple tutorial that explains to me clearly how I read them into a .NET page using VB.NET. I want full control over the placement of the data in the elements they contain. I don't want to use a dataset. I navigated the DOM in Classic ASP and put the elements' contents into variables. I didn't even need a Schema to make the setup work perfectly. I had full control over how I could...Reading XML when no XML present for xmlnode...

The following code works fine when reading from an xml file:
xmlfile = Server.MapPath("xml") & "\Jobs.xml"
But when I try to read from an external xml source it gives an error:
The given path's format is not supported.
xmlfile = Server.MapPath("xml") & http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
Can anyone help? Thanks. Clare
Server.MapPath maps to local resources. In your case, it maps the physical path to the xml folder and looks for Jobs.xml inside that. To get data from an an external source, take a look at the XmlDocument class, specifically the Load()...read XML tag in XML file
