There are XML Extenders to the database - they let you use SQL to get at XML data, I believe - they might be a cost item but if you need it just once, install it and use it for 70 days.

There's a manual under database at infocenter - give it a good read as to setup.

-------------- Original message --------------
From: "rick baird" <rick.baird@xxxxxxxxx>

I was looking for a simple XML to PF conversion, along the lines of
CPYFRMIMPF or some such on V5R3.

I looked through the archives and found where RPG has some extensions
for XML parsing in V5R4 - no luck there.

I also saw some references to Scott Klement's xml parser, and I'd love
to dive into that, but at this point, third party roll your own stuff
is out of the question for this tiny project. The politics involved
in getting it installed and getting myself up to speed on it aren't
worth the effort.

The XML file in question is very simple, will have the same number of
columns as the target PF, even the same column names.

I'm getting the feeling I'm out of luck, but I thought I'd check once
more just to make sure.

No need to reply unless you have something other than what i've
already mentioned.
