sasCommunity Tip of the Day
The SAS XML Mapper is a stand-alone application that provides a drag and drop tool for building a scheme for translating from the hierarchical layout of an XML file to a relational set of tables (a mapping in the mathematical sense). The SAS XML libname engine can then use this XML Map to read any XML file with the same schema. The version of XML Mapper that comes with SAS 9.2 has the "Automap" tool which will create a complete relational structure using counter variables. SAS Version 9.2 can also export data from SAS tables into the XML structure corresponding to an XML Map file.
