Hello,

When I try to convert my table into an xml file, (Right click table, export to xml) only 5 of the 8 columns appear in the xml file, how do I get all the columns to be included in the xml file?

Thanks,

Victor

What are the data types of your columns?

As Carl Tawn suggests, some column types don't export, like Attachment and Multivalued Fields, OLE fields, hyperlinks, etc. I'm not sure about Memo, but it wouldn't surprise me if those did not export either.

When you do the export you have the Options button ... there's not much there, but you should review those to make sure the options are set correctly (they're very obvious, like Export Data, Export Schema, etc).

Hi,

All the columns are of type "Text".

Compact the database before doing this.

Also, be sure your Office and Windows installs are up to date.

If you still have troubles, upload your database here so we can look into it. Be sure to remove or obfuscate any sensitive information first.

Compact is a maintenance process, and is a good thing to do on a regular basis.

In 2007, click the Office button (the big round button), then click Manage, then Compact.

Here's an MSFT article that gives you some background on what Compact does ...
