I have a client with a need for XML output  from Foxpro.  I have played with it a bit in the past- enough to generate something useful, but he needs a specific header in his XML file and I have not figured out how add it:

In the past I have made simple XML files from a Cursor that generate data in this fashion:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 -<Tablename>
       -<Field1>datum1</Field1>
       -<Field2>datam2</Field2>
 -</Tablename>

Foxpro will do that just with the CURSORTOXML() command.  But, this time I need to add some sort of a header defination:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
   -<Mcr reportingDate="2011-01-01" periodType="MCRYTD" year="2011" type="S">
        -<Tablename>
            -<Field1>datum1</Field1>
            -<Field2>datam2</Field2>
       -</Tablename>
  -</mcr>

And I am lost how to do this.  Any ideas, or useful references to a how to guide on this?
