Microsoft provides a good documentation here:

Also, notice that you will get a lot of examples for using ad rotator with .xml files.
and you can convert a datatable at any point of time in a xml file.

only reason I use a sqldatasource is because it lets the user put a life cycle to the ad's.  The SQL statement conditions only SELECT the ones that haven't ended.  

Can I input this in an xml?
