so i have a working application that calls a stored proc and binds to the data set that is returned.

i want to use select * from table for auto xml

or something that would return XML and want to have the data grid bind to that without me having to do things manually.

any advice on how to get this done?

below is the xml that is created when i add a "for xml auto" to my select.
the datagrid.databind() fails not being able to find fields (attributes of sub nodes. the one it fails on is MilestoneText)

using xml raw does what i need, it gets all the fields in the select as attributes to a single node. the grid binds to this xml just fine.
