Hi xml gurus,
I have an xml file which is 200Mb in size. I want to open on a PC but I cannot because my PC has 128 memory RAM. So if I try to open in a notepad, textpad or wordpad it hangs.
Can you tell me a way to open it.
Thanks in advance
Arun Nair

There are editors suitable for opening files bigger than memory, but do you have to have the entire file available for editing or do you just need to make a change at a specific location?

Hi Arun,
If I may ask, how exactly did you come up with a 200-MB XML file? Did you extract a whole database then convert it to XML? If that is the case, then I think you may have just to re-extract it, but this time break it down recordset by recordset of say, a thousand records, so that you'll have a handful of relatively small XML files that can be loaded into WordPad or NotePad.
