I bet this is a schoolboy problem but even the mighty google is not helping. I am trying to read chunks of DMOZ RDF xml into a dataset.
I am getting a "The same table (xxxx) cannot be the child table in two nested relations." error which I think I can sort out by doing a XSL transform .. which is where I am stuck.
What I am doing is
Dim DS As DataSet = New DataSet
DS.ReadXml(MapPath("xml/" + Request("x") + ".xml"))
DataGrid1.DataSource = DS.Tables("externallinks")
DS = Nothing
How do I wedge in a transform to take out the offending relation before I do the ReadXml statement?
The XSL examples I see online either output to a file or use methods that VS is telling me is obselete :O(
Because these subordinate tags appear in multiple nested relations it barfs on it.
I could use a regular expression I guess but
A) I will not know ahead of time what might be dropped in (eg. a xhtml tag like <p/> dropped in anywhere will do the same thing if not
enclosed in CDATA)
B) It's an opportunity to learn :O)
This seemed close
But uses obsolete methods and does the transform after loading into ds, I need to do before and do it in memory as I do not want to create
Actually I just want to display it but rest of code is fine so figure just need to get around the problem rather than redevelop it.
Anyone out there got any solutions? :O)
