Reply with quote

I am new at using the XML Generate statement.
Input layout is as follows:
01 noattso.
05 na-bko PIC XXX.
05 na-bro PIC XXX.
05 na-cuso PIC X(7).
05 na-lno PIC X(4).
05 na-nam1o PIC X(36).
05 na-nam2o PIC X(36).
05 na-nam3o PIC X(36).
05 na-nam4o PIC X(36).
05 na-nam5o PIC X(36).
05 na-rate PIC SV9(7).
05 na-org PIC S9(09)V99.

01 xml-out.
05 xml-out-rec PIC X(1000) VALUE SPACES.

Procedure Division Chunk:
XML GENERATE xml-out FROM
noattso
COUNT IN WS-COUNT
ON EXCEPTION
DISPLAY 'PROGRAM XML1: XML GENERATE FAILED'

Output file currently is producted as follows:
<noattso><na-bko>503</na-bko><na-bro>387</na-bro><na-cuso>0257502........

Question: Is there a way to preserve the input hierarchy (each field on its on line) of noattso and produce an output file such as:
<noattso>
<na-bko>503</na-bko>
<na-bro>387</na-bro>
cuso>0257502

If you read the syntax diagram for XML GENERATE in the Enterprise COBOL Language Reference manual, you will find that XML GENERATE works to produce a single output variable. If you want anything else, it is NOT XML and you will have to produce it by parsing the output variable after the XML GENERATE is complete.
