Subject:Re:Importing XML files using ODBC

Hi, I know I am a bit late, sorry. 
I use Excel to open XML files, and import the data from Excel.
Works well if you have a flat table in your XML file.
I wrote an Objectpal routine to import the Excel file and analyse
 the field datatype and size.
Let me know, if you are interested in the sourcecode
