Hi,

I have problem with reading data from xml file into DataSet.
Problem is that after I import xml file into DataSet all coulumns in Table are
of type string no matter that in scheme file is one of columns type decimal:

<xs:element name="Price" msdata:ReadOnly="true" msdata:type="xs:decimal" minOccurs="0" />

I dont have lots of experience with xml in NET so I need some ideas?

Thanks
Tomaz

is a full example ... note you have to read the XML schema first other wise everything will be strings.

I try with MS code but its the same. So here is my code:

private DataSet ReadData(string DataFileName,string SchemaFileName,string DataSetName)
            {
                  FileStream FileStreamSchema = new FileStream(SchemaFileName,FileMode.Open,FileAccess.Read,FileShare.Read);
                  FileStream FileStreamData = new FileStream(DataFileName,FileMode.Open,FileAccess.Read,FileShare.Read);
                  DataSet DataSetOut=new DataSet(DataSetName);

                  try
                  {
                        DataSetOut.ReadXmlSchema(FileStreamSchema);
                        DataSetOut.ReadXml(FileStreamData);
                  }
                  catch( Exception ex)
                  {
                        MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
                  }
                  finally
                  {
                        FileStreamSchema.Close();
                        FileStreamData.Close();
                  }
                  return DataSetOut;
            }
