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.

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.
