Newbie Question - Getting started with XML for .Net

I have a new project which has just started. One of the requirements is to generate XML files. Do I have to create schema files? 

Does anyone have a tutorial or sample code to help me get started. I have some background using XML, but not in .NET.
Thx Mark

Thanks, this is very helpful.

What do I need to do extra to setup the schema for this xml file? Is the schema really necessary as well?
Thx Mark

Problems writing to an XML file
I'm brand new to using XML (in fact this is my first project), so bear with me, I may need a little hand-holding. I'm trying to create a page which simply adds data to an existing xml file. Ultimately it will add the data from a form, but to keep things simple, I've been simply using pre-defined values. Originally I was able to get the script to write the xml exactly as I needed, however it would simply overwrite the existing file every time it was accessed. This is unacceptable, as it will be used to add data to one file, sort of like a mini database. So after much pain and gnashi...

xml schema newbie:Question about creation in VS.NET
Hi there, This is my first post so pardon my any ignorance on my behalf. I'm trying to create an XML schema for my web application in VS.NET. I have made the schema ok but when I try to add constraints (keys or relational) in the design view, either the options (from the tool bar)don't let me drag and drop or the item in the drop down menu is deactivated so I can't use them. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance, Mark Please do not reply further to this question as I have now resolved it - thanks...

To .NET or not .NET, that is the question
I'm running WinXP pro 32-bit, meaning I've got the version 1-dot-something of .NET that XP came with. I've been looking for various softwares, and more and more often come across .NET version 2 being prerequisite. No urgency for me re. my questions to this group - so far I have just decided to hit the red X on those download pages - but the desire for this newer version of .NET seems to be growing for me. Firstly, according to my (limited) research, newer .NET versions are inclusive of the previous ones, and the current version seems to be 3.5. So if I go for i...

ADO.NET(XML) Datasource missing
Well something has transpired with the ADO.NET(XML) Datasource, it is disappearing off our machines! We’ve been messing around with .NET 2.0 but I’m not sure that this is related.  When we try to validate tables we get “The database DLL ‘crdb_adoplus.dll’ could not be loaded. Just to clarify we are using Crystal Reports 9 Developer Edition, with the cr90dbexwin_en.exe patch to fix issues with the crdb_adoplus.dll   We’ve tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling Crystal with no luck..

XML in, XML out
