Hello Friends

How it is possible to count total number of records are present in my xml file.


Fredrik Bornander 2-Jul-13 17:50pm    
Using what language, C#, Java, C++?
What do you mean by record? Do you mean element?
Can you show us a sample of your XML and what in it it is you want to count?

XML does not support the concept of "record", so, there is nothing to count; and this is an ambiguous or incorrect question.

XML represent a tree structure of notes called "elements". You can count then (or, say, number of elements on each tree level, or something else related to the number of elements) using nearly any XML parser. It depends on what platform/language/library you can use.
