What Next?

You have seen how XML exports from FileMaker can retain the structure of a relationship. (Simple exports—that is, from a single table or from a table with only one-to-one relationships—are easy both with XML and with the simpler technologies described in Hour 11.)

By their nature, these complex data exports need careful attention when you want to import them into other applications. A variety of tools is available specifically designed to work with XML files and to locate data within them. Two of the most common are XPath and XQuery. You can pair them with XML to quickly write code to parse your XML files.
