Exporting to AS400
We need to generate some formatted text files for this. I'm thinking up an approach... the concept would involve a Structure that identified all the fields and then generated a file with padded fields (ie. 9 characters long, 30 characters long, etc... )
it greatly depends on your data source and your in-house toolset. and the requirements.
(ADO.NET) XML -> XSLT -> fixed-width text
I'll second the XML->XSLT. I used it to go back and forth between HP Minicomputers and EDI files, and it worked very well.
