View Full Version : Creating xml document

01-06-2005, 11:09 AM

I am very newbie to XML. I am creating a search engine where users can pull records based on postcode search. what i am trying to do is create a xml documents in runtime and get my query populated and delete the xml document automatically. is there any example or link where i can see this happening? i am using asp for the search engine.

What language are you using to create the document?

Can we see some contextual source code, both of the engine generating the XML and a sample of the XML?

I am using asp.
the xml file shld create a file which shld contains all the post codes within the no of miles of entered.

for eg:
<xcode>wd6 2jl</xcode>
<ycode>wd6 2jl</ycode>
<xcode>wd6 2jl</xcode>
<ycode>en5 3htl</ycode>


xcode is teh code entered by the user and the ycode are the codes populated within certain no of miles.

I can create a table where all the post code can be calcuated and stored but the reason for not doing is the table will be very big.
currenty there 9000 sector code , so if i try to create a table it willl be 9000 * 9000= 81000000 rows

hope this clears.

You might get better results if I transfer this thread to the ASP forum. Do you want me to do that?

(Please don't open a new thread there, though.)
