I recently had some development work done so that one of our systems would produce an XML file. When I open the XML file in a text editor, all of the data inside is on one line, rather than being formatted as below. The file gets generated from one of our systems, which we then send to another company. They are saying that the new file won't import because they are expecting the carriage returns like in the example, but this doesn't have them.
When I spoke to the company that developed this they are telling me XML files are not supposed to have carriage returns in them. I would like to know if this is correct, as every XML file I have opened using a text editor in the past has returns. And when I create an XML file from excel, it has carriage returns?
Could somebody please tell me if somebody is trying to fox me here?
