Data Transformation


"VorteXML's implementation of schema support opens up a new window of functionality for user and consortium created XML. VorteXML's ability to derive, edit and save taxonomies from existing documents makes V3 a great tool for generating XML for all kinds of business reporting. For example, companies facing Sarbanes-Oxley section 404 compliance will find this tool a welcome addition to address their documentation needs."

Neal J. Hannon, XBRL authority and lecturer at the
University of Hartford's Barney School of Business

Now with W3C XML schema support

VorteXML Designer V3 is a powerful desktop data transformation tool that visually converts structured text data such as reports, purchase orders, EDI, invoices, log files and more to XML without programming. Based on Monarch technology, VorteXML is expressly designed to empower business users to quickly and easily transform their operational data into XML using any DTD or schema. Users only need to understand their source data - no programming experience is required.

VorteXML uses standard text files for input, so anyone can use it. A simple point-and-click user interface lets users define the data they want to extract. This makes VorteXML a quick and easy to use tool for technical and non-technical users alike who want to web-enable operations such as purchasing, billing, supply chain operations, financial transactions, and customer records.

New schema editing capabilities

VorteXML Designer is also now a very practical schema editing tool for business users. Many industry standard schemas are overcomplicated, as they have to cater for every possible situation. VorteXML Designer allows users to easily derive custom schemas for their own internal or B2B purposes by using a standard schema and then editing it down to size to suit their needs. The result is a compliant XML document, but without the unnecessary bloating.

With VorteXML Designer, you can:

  • Quickly and easily generate XML documents from existing structured text output, such as reports, EDI, invoices, log files, HTML files and more
  • Perform XML conversions without programming
  • Work with text data files generated from any computer system
  • Visually map extracted data to any desired DTD or schema, ensuring valid XML
  • Derive new XML content not already in existing text data files using calculated fields
  • Reorder datasets based on XML requirements
  • Use filters to create XML documents that contain only data that meets the user's criteria
  • Overcome DTD limitations with VorteXML recognition engine that correctly interprets numeric, date and currency formats of text data

What's New in VorteXML Designer Version 3

VorteXML Designer V3 offers a variety of significant enhancements including W3C XML schema support that make it even easier to convert data into valid XML for Web Services, content management, online bill presentment, application integration, and any other applications that require XML.

Specifically VorteXML Designer Version 3 Edition adds the following features:

  • Supports XSD schemas for loading into the mapping tree and validation
  • Allows derivation and generation of XML schema from input data
  • Offers easy generation of custom XML schema from existing XSD, XDR or DTDs
  • Provides intelligent querying of schemas on loading
  • Avoids bloating of XML files, by allowing for suppression of non-required elements and attribution
  • Adds search functionality for elements and attribution in the mapping tree, for use with very large schemas and DTDs
  • Provides support for Datetime and Time input data
  • Offers an improved Analysis window, giving extensive feedback on potential problems during the profile development
  • Supplies an improved Verify function, so users can quickly identify and accommodate data that falls outside defined parameters
  • New Formula editor
  • Full support for UTF-8 encoding

Description of Features

Generating schema from the output tree

VorteXML is able to write fully featured XSD Schema based on the output tree and the accompanying metadata, such as the repetition settings and base datatypes.

This functionality can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Generating a schema from scratch using the simple tree interface
  • Generating a schema by importing the data extracted from the input document
  • Generating a standalone schema after importing a schema that is distributed over many files
  • Generating a 'local' schema after importing a schema that uses multiple namespaces
  • Generating a custom schema, after importing an existing schema and editing it to your specific requirements
