Hi,

I like to write a DataSet to a file.
Is not such difficult as all the included source works fine.
The result is this:
<NewDataSet>
  <Table>
    <EmployeeID>1</EmployeeID>
    <LastName>Davolio</LastName>
    <FirstName>Nancy</FirstName>
...
  </Table>
</NewDataSet>

But what I need is this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Employees>
  <Employee EmployeeID="1" LastName="Davolio" FirstName="Nancy" .../>
</Employees>

Can I do this with WrtieXML and simple changes or how to get this result?

Thanks

Andre
string query = "SELECT * FROM Employees;";
            try
            {
                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(String.Format("Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog={0};User={1};Password={2};", db, user, pw));
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, conn);
                conn.Open();
                SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter();
                adapter.SelectCommand = cmd;
                SqlCommandBuilder cb = new SqlCommandBuilder(adapter);
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                adapter.Fill(ds);
                string xmlFilename = @"C:\XmlDocument.xml";
                System.IO.FileStream streamWrite = new System.IO.FileStream(xmlFilename, System.IO.FileMode.Create);
                ds.WriteXml(streamWrite);
                streamWrite.Close();
                ds.Dispose();
                conn.Close();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
            }

here's the full code:
string query = "SELECT * FROM Employees;";
            try
            {
                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(String.Format("Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog={0};User={1};Password={2};", db, user, pw));
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, conn);
                conn.Open();
                SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter();
                adapter.SelectCommand = cmd;
                SqlCommandBuilder cb = new SqlCommandBuilder(adapter);
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                adapter.Fill(ds);
                string xmlFilename = @"C:\XmlDocument.xml";
                System.IO.FileStream streamWrite = new System.IO.FileStream(xmlFilename, System.IO.FileMode.Create);
DataTable dt = ds.Tables[0];
dt.TableName="Employees";
                ds.WriteXml(streamWrite);
                streamWrite.Close();
                ds.Dispose();
                conn.Close();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
            }

Still the same with dt.WriteXml:
<NewDataSet>
  <Employees>
    <EmployeeID>1</EmployeeID>
    <LastName>Davolio</LastName>
    <FirstName>Nancy</FirstName>
    <Title>Sales Representative</Title>
  </Employees>

Just one more thing to do:
DataSet ds = new DataSet("Employees");

Thanks
