Can anyone help? I have a requirement to export some data from SQL server 2008 into XML format, then automatically save the results from my SQL query into as a .XML file, then convert this file using XSLT and lastly I need to post the converted file to a web service.

I have managed to retrieve the data into XML, save the results as a .XML file

I cannot figure out how to automatically send the data to a web service. I would love some code which states: If file exists then post.

I know the URL to send the .xml to and my file is in the correct format.

I imagine I would need to use some form of VB code, but I am a complete novice with VB. I have access to Visual Studio, but no real idea how to use it or how to deploy a project. If any one could offer up a solution I would be extremely grateful.

When you are in doubt, remember that Google can definitely help you get started.
See these links:
XML Support in Microsoft SQL Server 2005[^]
Google search - sql to xml[^]
Google search - how to send data to a web service[^]

And yes, you can write code in any language to use a web service. It is language independent. Your data just needs to be serialised and follow the web service standards and formats.

Hope this gives you a start!
