Hi there,

Can anyone help?

I have imported an xml file into a dataset using ReadXML method. And it has worked, but its invented a new columnn name. So i am having problems binding it to a grid.

I don't understand why its invented a new column name... i would appreciate any input .. Thanks in advance...

Here a portion of the xml file...  as you can see .. there is a total of 4 columns
- <Cartera>
- <Record>
  <VAL>COMPANY A</VAL>
  <E>CBC456</E>
  <TI>928</TI>
  <VALUATION>19612222</VALUATION>
  </Record>
etc ,.... etc.....

Here is me printing out the values of the table in DEBUG - see number [4] it shouldn't be there, it is of course present in ALL rows and seems to equal {0} in all rows...
? myDataSet.Tables["Record"].Rows[5].ItemArray
{Length=5}
    [0]: "COMPANY A"
    [1]: "CBC456"
    [2]: "928"
    [3]: "19612222"
    [4]: {0}

? myDataSet.Tables["Record"].Columns[4].ColumnName
"Cartera_Id"

string xmlfilepath = @"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Temporary Projects\ConsoleApplication1\XMLFile1.xml";
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            ds.ReadXml(xmlfilepath);

            DataTable dtbl = ds.Tables[0];
            foreach (DataRow dr in dtbl.Rows)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(dr[0]);
                Console.WriteLine(dr[1]);
                Console.WriteLine(dr[2]);
                Console.WriteLine(dr[3]);
           
            }
            Console.ReadLine();

I did the above code on your xml but it is running perfect whenever i try to do dr[4] it gives me an error that column 4 not found...

thanks

Thanks rinksno1.. ermmm very strange... thanks for offering help here as it has me beat!! It is much appreciated.

I just did the same, and i still got number 4 :-) Maybe it will help if i show you more code and the real XML file rather than an example/portion?

All below is actual real data.

I changed your test a little and got this in the Console output

REPSOL YPF
ES0173516115
92845
1959029.50
0   /// THIS ISN'T on the XML file

my code below... is complete ... Get CarteraBolsas is a method that calls WebService that i wrote which returns XmlNode

the contents on tester.OuterXML - I copied and pasted it in the Command window..
? tester.OuterXml
"<response xmlns=\"\"><Error code=\"0\" description=\"OK\" /><CarteraDeBolsas><Record><VALOR>REPSOL YPF</VALOR><ISIN>ES0173516115</ISIN><TITULOS>92845</TITULOS><VALORACION>1959029.50</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>FERROVIAL</VALOR><ISIN>ES0162601019</ISIN><TITULOS>19000</TITULOS><VALORACION>1091550</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>GR.EMP.ENCE</VALOR><ISIN>ES0130625017</ISIN><TITULOS>39546</TITULOS><VALORACION>1166607</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>ABENGOA</VALOR><ISIN>ES0105200416</ISIN><TITULOS>4000</TITULOS><VALORACION>74760</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>BSCH</VALOR><ISIN>ES0113900J37</ISIN><TITULOS>429243</TITULOS><VALORACION>4700210.85</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>ENDESA</VALOR><ISIN>ES0130670112</ISIN><TITULOS>124735</TITULOS><VALORACION>3319198.35</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>ZELTIA</VALOR><ISIN>ES0184940817</ISIN><TITULOS>287208</TITULOS><VALORACION>1619853.12</VALORACION></Record><Record><VALOR>CEPSA</VALOR><ISIN>ES0132580319</ISIN><TITULOS>23000</TITULOS><VALORACION>12

and my code
                  DataSet myDataSet = new DataSet();

                  XmlNode tester = GetCarteraBolsas(); // this is a method that calls a webservice


                  XmlNodeReader testme = new XmlNodeReader(tester);


                  
                  myDataSet.ReadXml(testme);


                  DataTable dtbl = myDataSet.Tables["Record"]; // I need to ask for "Record" as my dataset contains more tables i.e. the Error table
                  foreach (DataRow dr in dtbl.Rows)
                  {
                        Console.WriteLine(dr[0]);
                        Console.WriteLine(dr[1]);
                        Console.WriteLine(dr[2]);
                        Console.WriteLine(dr[3]);
                        Console.WriteLine(dr[4]); //this still returns 0
           
                  }
