    Editing XML map, can't add top level container

    The board is interpreting the XML as HTML or something, so removed all of it. I have replaced XML markers with () instead...

    Hi all, I understand the general concept of changing a workbook to a zip file, then modifying the xmlMaps.XML file to modify an XML map. However, I am having tons of difficulty adding a top level 'container'. If anyone has any hints as to what I am doing wrong, it would be greatly appreciated.

    My current XML map is of a single (report), but I want to change it so I can load a series of (report)s in a single file, such as:

    (Original_reports)
    (report)
    stuff in the middle...
    (/report)
    (report)
    stuff in the middle...
    (/report)
    (report)
    stuff in the middle...
    (/report)
    (/Original_reports)

    My ORIGINAL xmlMaps.XML looks like this:

    (Schema ID="Schema2")(xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" id="report" xmlns="")
    (xs:element name="report")
    (xs:complexType)
    (xs:sequence)
    stuff in the middle...
    (/xs:sequence)
    (/xs:complexType)
    (/xs:schema)

    (Map ID="1" Name="original_reports_Map" RootElement="original_reports" SchemaID="Schema1" ShowImportExportValidationErrors="false" AutoFit="true" Append="false" PreserveSortAFLayout="true" PreserveFormat="true")(DataBinding
    FileBinding="true" ConnectionID="1" DataBindingLoadMode="1"/)(/Map)(Map ID="2" Name="V4Schema" RootElement="report" SchemaID="Schema2" ShowImportExportValidationErrors="false" AutoFit="true" Append="false"
    PreserveSortAFLayout="true" PreserveFormat="true"/)(/MapInfo)

    I dont really understand what the last line is. The map I am trying to mod is Map ID 2, "V4Schema"

    Based on another similar map in the same workbook (Map ID 1), I changed the XML for Map 2 to this:

    (Schema ID="Schema2")(xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" id="report" xmlns="")

    (xs:element name="original_reports")
    (xs:complexType)
    (xs:sequence)

    (xs:element name="report")
    (xs:complexType)
    (xs:sequence)
    stuff in the middle...
    (/xs:sequence)
    (/xs:complexType)
    (/xs:sequence)

    (/xs:complexType)
    (/xs:schema)

    (Map ID="1" Name="original_reports_Map" RootElement="original_reports" SchemaID="Schema1" ShowImportExportValidationErrors="false" AutoFit="true" Append="false" PreserveSortAFLayout="true" PreserveFormat="true")(DataBinding
    FileBinding="true" ConnectionID="1" DataBindingLoadMode="1"/)(/Map)(Map ID="2" Name="V4Schema" RootElement="original_reports" SchemaID="Schema2" ShowImportExportValidationErrors="false" AutoFit="true" Append="false" PreserveSortAFLayout="true" PreserveFormat="true"/)(/MapInfo)

    When I do this, it removes BOTH maps from the workbook entirely. I have also tried removing the last bit, (/xs:complexType), (/xs:schema) as the other, similar map seems to omit this.

    The other similar map also has this at the end, I don't know if it makes a difference or not, as I don't really understand what it is doing...

    (DataBinding FileBinding="true" ConnectionID="1" DataBindingLoadMode="1"/)(/Map)

    I'm assuming there is a mistake in the end bit, but as I donít understand it, I really don't know.

    Thanks very much for any help you might be able to provide!

    Any help out there? Or barring that, any idea what this might cost on the 'experts' forum? Thanks!
