This tool lets you create an XML View schema file, and relates the XDR schema to your database schema. You'll need SQL Server 2000 to use this tool, along with a basic understanding of XML.

The XML View Mapper provides database access using XML data files. It offers you a tool that automates many of the functions and validations necessary to create well formed (and thus executable) XML translations. It is a set of tools within a graphical framework.
