I've also replied on the RPG400 list and prefer to continue there.

Moses, what do you have so far? You will need some kind of data structure. It'd help if you give us your start or how far you've come - I'm not ready to start from the beginning. Besides, my boss would be very displeased, considering the pressure we are under right now!!

You say watered down - it would be helpful to have the true structure - and just so you know, XML-INTO has its limits - if things get complicated, you may need to look at XML-SAX.

Nonetheless, there are several good examples of what the structure should be for - RPG Reference is the place to look.

If it's possible, you'll want to have the structure start, perhaps, at the <order> - you have choices in this - you would want an array in your DS for <order> - another array for <item> things.

Hello,

I'm fairly new to using xml-into. I'm currently trying to write a program that uses xml-into and %handler to parse order information. How can I use xml-into and %handler to parse the xml and write them into separate header and detail tables without having to specify the order nbr inside of the item_list section. Anyone have an example I can check out? Below is a watered down sample xml I need to parse:

<request>
<order>
<nbr>123</nbr>
<item_list>
<item>abc</item>
<item>def</item>
</item_list>
</order>
<order>
<nbr>456</nbr>
<item_list>
<item>abc</item>
<item>def</item>
<item>xyz></item>
</item_list>
</order>
</request>

Thanks,
