Here is an XML example

XML With Attributes

To load it all we need to do is to set the data source type to XML and select appropriate XML tags for "Table Tag" and "Record Tag"

Data reader settings :
XML with Attributes Datareader

Note: "Ignore Tags" is checked

There is no data in the grid because we have to transform XML into a more readable format first, using XSLT.
XML With Attributes Data

About XSLT:

XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents, or other objects such as HTML for web pages, plain text or into XSL Formatting Objects which can then be converted to PDF, PostScript, and PNG.

Typically, input documents are XML files, but anything from which the processor can build an XQuery and XPath Data Model can be used, for example, relational database tables, or geographical information systems.

  • swissbanking

    I used Advanced ETL Processor in 2 Enterprises for many business processes and Business automation (outside finance department). I did not find any other tool with so many functions and broad flexibility for that Price! If you need support for bugs or solution design you will get it very fast. Best Support I have ever seen.

    The product is easy to learn and once a developer understands the ETL way for solving the problem at hand, the developer's productivity will increase. Even our DBAs now uses the ETL software to quickly create solutions instead of SSIS or SQL jobs.
