  • CAML2XSL.XSL... is this where the magic happens?!

    When working with Frontpage against SharePoint sites, you have the great possibility to convert a list view to an XSLT dataview, resulting in a block of XSLT code that can be modified. What happens seems to be pure magic, but now I found a file C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\CAML2XSL.XSL that seems to do the trick! List rendering is defined in CAML format, and this XSL transformation script can convert this CAML into corresponding XSLT. Great it works this way because we have some trouble with this sometimes (the transformation contains some bugs) so now we can fix this script. If anyone has more info on this.... please let me know!
