Topic: Language filter

There is no such functionality, because XMLSpy covers the whole UNICODE equally.

But you can use XPath tab to search for such characters quickly.

Ok, just realized what you did (I'm guessing, because you have not provided enough details).

By "just downloaded the software" you have meant that you have downloaded XML Spy.

And then you have chosen some of the commands which involve MapForce, but with a new XML file, which was not saved to disk - therefore an error in MapForce which you see.

Basically, if you have no specific requirements on how to convert - you should simply use command Convert/Export to Text Files, and choose here the radio button Convert XML into text files. You will get a result of conversion of which was done in a predefined way.

If you have to convert to some specific format and/or Excel, then you should completely stick to MapForce and not use XMLSpy for that purpose.

What do you mean by "When I use convert to text file"?

You can use replace function:

replace( '0453/45674788', '[^0-9]', '' )

Topic: MapForce 2014 Command Line
Posted: Monday, August 04, 2014 11:10:50 AM
Not necessarily. If you are happy with MapForce 2013 functionality - stay with it.

MapForce Server is highly optimized for performance and memory consumption, runs on multiple platforms, can be easily integrated into FlowForce environment for scheduled execution and is part of deployment concept supported by MapForce, etc, etc. It is a real professional server and cannot be compared to running a desktop application. But if you feel that it was enough for you, just stick to the last version you used.

Since more than a year, introduction of the MapForce Server in April 2013, the command line mapping execution has been moved to the MapForce Server.

Topic: hide rows in pdf output

Yes, it does. Right click the row symbol (black triangle button) and use "Edit conditional processing..." - here you can enter any XPath statement to make data dependent row hiding

Topic: XML to XSD problem

Why so complicated? Why don't you take this file itself and give it to MapForce directly - it will create a schema for you automatically.

>The documentation says to use FlexText, but FlexText does not have much of its own documentation
I don't know what you are talking about. The documentation says:

The top list box displays the existing components in the mapping, (three schemas if you opened the example file). Note that this list contains all of the components that have been inserted into the active mapping: e.g. XML Schema , database, EDI file, or FlexText structure file.

The lower list box allows you to select a new complex data structure i.e. XML Schema, Database file, EDI file, or FlexText structure file.

Anyway, if the problem is resolved...

I was talking about your user-defined function RE_Normalize. Instead of having so and so many output fields, you should only have one - double-click the output parameter within the function and change it to a Complex type (tree structure)

I would also REALLY suggest to read documentation if you get stuck - everything is perfectly described there.
