Hi Folks, I'm trying to read .xml files into Stata. Once there, I can parse them, even if they are read into just one variable - I'm handy with -regexm- and the like. My problem is that I can't seem to get around the quotation marks in the file. Two rows of the file look like this: <session="NCX_1" target="entrance" movie="0" start="22:22:23.000" duration="199" /> <session="NCX_2" target="floor" movie="0" start="22:22:24.000" duration="179" /> When I insheet, I get 199/> 179/> When I xmluse, I get unrecognizable XML doctype r(198); regardless of which doctype I specify. Are there any tricks for getting Stata to ignore the quotation marks within the file?
