Importing XML to multiple tables

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm building a new solution from scratch. My first step is importing an XML file that contains multiple tables in the same file.

I have translated it to FMPXMLRESULT format with an XSLT. The problem I run into is trying to make the data go into multiple fields.

To test if it is even possible, I made a dirt-simple test database with 2 tables of 2 fields each, with the tables related, and exported to XML. The resulting file includes fields from both related tables.

When I reimported that same file back to the test DB, it still would only try to put the fields in one table.

Is this even possible to do?

You can only import into one table at a time.

Note also that exporting related fields is not exactly the same as exporting from two tables.
