This command generates the XSLT file(s) needed for the transformation from the source file(s). Selecting this option opens the Browse for Folder dialog box where you select the location of the XSLT file. The name of the generated XSLT file(s) is defined in the Mapping Settings dialog box, see Changing the mapping settings.
This command generates the XQuery file(s) needed for the transformation from the source file(s). Selecting this option opens the Browse for Folder dialog box where you select the location of the XQuery file. The name of the generated XQuery file(s) is defined in the Mapping Settings dialog box, see Changing the mapping settings.
