Re: User Error

I have had to supply data in XML files to CMS (Medicare/Medicaid), so there is at least one schema that works and is routinely used to exchange data.

They even helpfully supplied a sample file, so I was able to write a program to extract our data and create the file they required.

Would this have any use to anyone besides moving data? Nah, certainly not a useful format to view or manipulate data.
