Need to read an XML File

Hi,

 

I am facing tough time in reading an XML file as i have never done it before in SAS.

Can anyone help me in reading a sample XML file attached(the file extention has been changed as doc as i was not able to upload the xml file)

Can we read it using any XML engine available in Libname statement (if any)

It would also be good if any effective helpful learning material referance could also be provided.

 

Thanks

Re: Need to read an XML File

filename xx temp;
libname acrp xmlv2 "C:\temp\acrp.xml" automap=replace xmlmap=xx;

Using the free Xml Mapper tool from SAS instead of the automap will probably suit you better

Hi

 

I used the xml mapper tool as well instead of automap but the results are same.

 

What else i may try.

 

Thanks

The code @FriedEgg posted works for me with the file you've provided (once I've renamed it to the name FriedEgg uses).
