This tutorial will demonstrate how you can use Flash with MDM Zinc v2.5 - a SWF to EXE program - to create a program which reads CSV files and saves them to hard disk as XML files.
The CSV (comma separated values) file format is a delimited data format that has fields seperated by commas and records seperated by newlines. Most database managing programs allow you to export database data in CSV format. In this tutorial, it is assumed you have a basic knowledge of ActionScript (in particular nested loops) and Flash's XML Class.
To see this tutorial in action you can download the trial version of Zinc from the Trial Download page and use it to compile the provided SWF into a full standalobe application (The trial versions of Zinc are free for evaluation purposes and have all of the functionality of the full versions).
You can also download the complete application directly from the MDM File Exchange.
