Microsoft SQL Server View Mapper enables you to produce an XML View schema file that relates an XDR schema to a SQL Server schema. XML View Mapper is designed to work with the XML functionality introduced in SQL Server 2000. SQL Server 2000 uses XML View schemas to support database access through XML. Creating an XML View schema by hand can be complex and time consuming. Using XML View Mapper simplifies this task because it includes tools and a working environment that automates the mechanics of manually merging data from two kinds of schemas.
