[LandXML] Re: LandXML - Bentley/In Roads to Land Desktop 2006

A quick test is:

Run the landxml reporting toolkit, open your bently document and try to
run some style sheets against in (creat reports.) If it works in the
AutoCAD LandXML reporting toolkit, then...
If it does not work open it in Altova XML Spy Home edition and see if it
is valid xml.

Subject: [LandXML] LandXML - Bentley/In Roads to Land Desktop 2006


Hi, I am trying to figure out how to import an XML file into Land
Desktop 2006 (all patches).  It's a real struggle on the user level to
actually get XML to work properly.  It seems like a pretty straight
forward concept but I can not get it to work properly from a Bentley
product to Land Desktop.  As I understand it, Land Desktop is pretty
much the instigators of the LandXML format.  I know XML is a loose set
of data coding/formatting and that LandXML is trying to tighten this up
with a set of standards.  Is this an issue between Bentley and AutoDesk?
I emailed a Bentley official once and he seemed to indicate that
Bentley's thoughts on XML was that it is a way to get raw data to
another computer/cad platform as opposed to a finished surface or
complete alignment etc...  Does this ring true?

If anyone has any help on this I would appreciate it, or at least some
sort of steer in the correct direction!  To recap I just want help in
importing an XML file (a 26 mb file) purportedly from Bentley Inroads
into Land Desktop 2006 format.

Thanks!
