    Default ASP and XLS or just ASP??

    What is the best way to access an XML file? I was originally taught to use a combination of ASP and XLS but I have just begun to use ASP by itself. It seems to be alot easier and far more flexible than XSL. Can anyone give me some ideas?

    Default Depends on what you..

    ... need.<BR><BR>I&#039;ve used XML in both ways. As a data storage and as a means to get data from a database.<BR><BR>I think it&#039;s generally considered standard to use XSL if you are retrieving the data from a database. Otherwise, there really isn&#039;t a point of using XML, at all.<BR><BR>If it&#039;s just a data storage mechanism (I was using it store information about some simple, static, products) - then go ahead and use it like it&#039;s data.<BR><BR>It&#039;s all in your requirements.
