Since XML is pure text, you have a lot of options for creating it, ranging from typing in a text editor to writing Java code. The first question is - what is the source of the data? You can save XML the same way you would save any long variable length character sequence. Bill
William, What I am trying to develop a servlet. Servlet should do the following: 1). reads an XML file, 2). determines the formats of the data, 3). creates a table in SQL Server 7.0 to accept the file, and 4). loads the file into the SQL Server table. Your detailed instructions are greatly appreciated. Form your above message, I believe that I can create a XML file in notepat or wordpat. When I save it, I use xml as it extension as I use html for a html file. Am I right?
