SQLXML 3.0: Build Data-Driven Web Services with Updated XML Support for SQL Server 2000


XML is becoming the ubiquitous data format on the Web, and XML support in SQL Server is evolving to meet the additional demand. Using XML, SOAP, HTTP, and SQL Server, you can now build powerful Web Services easily. To show just how simple it is with SQLXML 3.0, this article walks the reader through the process step by step, from setting up a virtual directory enabling data access via HTTP to executing queries and building Web Services. Finally, the author illustrates the creation of two Web Services clients-one with C# that works with the Microsoft .NET Framework and one with the SOAP Toolkit 2.0 for anyone still using earlier development tools.

XML in .NET: .NET Framework XML Classes and C# Offer Simple, Scalable Data Manipulation


Microsoft .NET introduces a new suite of XML APIs built on industry standards such as DOM, XPath, XSD, and XSLT. The .NET Framework XML classes also include innovations that offer convenience, better performance, and a more familiar programming model, tightly coupled with the new .NET data access APIs-ADO.NET. XmlWriter, XmlReader, and XmlNavigator classes and classes that derive from them, including XMLTextReader and XMLTextWriter, encapsulate a number of functionalities that previously had to be accomplished manually. A discussion of the XMLDOM-Document is also included.

Table Group can not handle more data

Hi All,   I've a report and from Query, I am generating all serial numbers with comma as seperation. Now I've got an error with serial numbers around 200.   I'm generating invoices through SSIS process and it failed and when I tried to figure out the reason, I found out this. And I tried to Save the Preview in PDF and it gave me the error   An Error Occured during local report processing. Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter Name : index   I tried to remove that serial_no group from the table, and it worked perfect (but i want that serial_number and thats MUST field in report.) And its working for all other reports. just not for something like BIG report with 4 products each have more than 200 quantities (means 200 serial numbers each)   (Also it will retrive all the data in preivew section. but nothing if you select PRINT PREVIEW)   Any suggestions or ideas whats going on. Thanks in Advance.
