I need help in learning how to create the define.xml/pdf file that go with the SAS transport dataset

I need help in learning how to create the define.xml/pdf file that go with the SAS transport datasets for regulatory submission. Once I have the transport files, what do I do?? I need to set up the process just to see how it works, I can take it from there once I see it! There seems to be many ways some very complicated, to do this... Is anyone familiar enough to give me a hand? I would really appreciate it!

You check for the generation of xml files based on the metadata of the dataset with the help of XML Engine, or you can try the XML mapper for incorporating complicated xml files that need to be transported along with a xml mapper files that defines the strucutre of the xml file to the xml engine.

Writing the xml file:

ods xml file='C:\workshop\ws119\XML\discharge_print.xml';
proc print noobs data=discharge;
run;
ods xml close;

Reading the xml file:
filename defxml "&XMLPATH/CHECK..xml";
filename xmlmap "&SOURCE_PATH/CHECK.map";
libname defxml xml xmlmap=XMLMAP access=READONLY;
