1. Introduction

Swift XML Converter Command Line allows you to import data from one or more XML files and convert it to Microsoft Excel (XLS), Microsoft Access (MDB or ACCDB), CSV, Text or HTML. It serves as a command line interface to Swift XML Converter (GUI) and allows access to most of the functionality so that these tasks can be scripted and automated.

Swift XML Converter works primarily with data-centric XML files to extract data from XML files and export to one of the many supported formats.

Main Features

  • Import XML files: Quickly import one or more XML files into a Swift Document (*.XDB) file.
  • Load XML from URLs: Import XML from local files or remote URLs, including web(HTTP) and FTP URLs. Specify file locations or URLs on the command line or from a file.
  • Execute Queries: Queries(1) that have been defined in the Swift document can be executed and the data extracted to any supported output format.
  • Export data to any supported format: You can extract table data or query data to Microsoft Excel (XLS), Microsoft Access (MDB or ACCDB), CSV, plain text or HTML.
  • Schedule automatic imports and exports: Use the Windows Scheduler to schedule XML import jobs. Or create a nightly job to extract the data for consumption by other applications.

Importing XML

  • Automatically figures out relationships: Swift XML Converter automatically creates data tables with parent - child relationships mirroring the XML structure.
  • Merge data from multiple XML files: Merge and extract the data from multiple XML files. Smart parsing will ensure the data will be merged according to the XML file structure.
  • Optimized for large files: Large and complex XML files are easily imported without running into large memory requirements.
  • Import XML from URLs: With the built-in URL-handling module, you can directly import XML from web(HTTP) and FTP URLs without having to fetch the file using another application. If the website (or FTP site) requires user name and password for authentication, that is supported too(2).
