Flat File To XML
Users of the eiConsole Can Convert Flat File Formats to XML
With the eiConsole conversions between Flat File formats and XML are handled via the “Delimited and Fixed-Width File” transformation module. As with all the components of the eiConsole, the user is presented with a graphical interface with easy to configure panels.
Using the File Specification Editor, the user can create a file specification for the transformation module to describe the conversion from the flat-file format to XML. The File Specification Editor can directly import a variety of formats.
As with any file specification, flat-file descriptions interpreted by the “Delimited and Fixed-Width File” transformer are bi-directional, enabling the user to use the same specification to convert from a flat-file format to XML, as well as vice-versa.
