I am trying to use an xml file as a data source.  I add new connection as xml, point it to the file, and point it to the schema file.  Seems to work, but no data.  This is my first try with this type of data source, help would be appreciated.

I will attach the two files I am working with.  Am running Vista 64 bit.

    WHat issue are you having?

    I used ADO.NET (XML) and chose the XML file and I can see all the "tables"

    I saw that in some of your earlier posts, but I don't have that as an option.  My option is just "xml" within Crystal.  Is it another driver I can download?

    I don't recall how I got that.  I thought it was an optional Crystal source.

    Apparently you need Visual Studio installed.

    Thanks for the help.  I ended up downloading the trial for CR 2011 and it had the ADO option in it and it is working great.  Thanks again!
