A suggestion I would make is to use XmlSpy if you have to do any XML work.
It can convert your XML into a number of database formats that you can then
bring into SAS. Simple point-and-click and you are off to the races.
XML is merely a data wrapper technology. It's great since it allows for
complete metadata. It may look confusing at first but it is really, really
powerful and promises to be the wave of the future.
You can try the utility I wrote that converts XML to delimited data:
This works for XML that isn't too complex. Really complex XML, imo, should
be approached using .NET since it has such powerful XML support.

Subject: XML question
I am new to XML, and I am confused about the XML display. When we use proc
report or tabulate, we can get a concrete display of the results, while I am
not sure if we can also display the XML results similar to proc report or
It seems to me there are lots of codes, instead of the results, and if we
get that kind of codes from XML, then how can I transfer it to the results.
Thanks much for your suggestions.
