          Instead of FTP, you would find greater success submitting to a server-side script, such as ASP.net or PHP, then parse the XML data into a ADO.net datarow.


          For online ASP.net examples:

              Inspect the source code of example # 04



              Sorry, but if you don't have programming experience, you will probably need to hire a web developer.



              Parsing XML and inserting into a SQL database is pretty straight forward.


              Put FDFApp.dll, and iTextSharp.dll in the bin directory, and reference the libraries in your visual studio .net project.

              FDFApp.dll can be found: http://fdftoolkit.codeplex.com


              Then create an ASP.net web page, and call the subroutine (Example_Data_Input) on the page load event.


              Public Sub Example_Data_Input()   

              Dim cFDFApp As New FDFApp.FDFApp_Class 

              Dim cFDFDoc As New FDFApp.FDFDoc_Class 


              cFDFDoc = cFDFApp.FDFOpenFromStream(Request.InputStream, True

              Dim tableName as string = "tablename"

              Dim sqlConnectionString as String = "PUT SQL CONNECTION STRING HERE"

              Dim ds As New DataSet

              Dim da as new System.Data.SQLClient.SQLDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM [" & tableName & "]",sqlConnectionString)

              Dim cmd as new System.Data.SQLClient.SQLCommandBuilder(da)


              If Not cFDFDoc Is Nothing Then 

              ' CREATE NEW DATA ROW 

              Dim dr As DataRow = ds.Tables(0).NewRow 

              ' SET DATA ROW FIELD VALUES FROM FDF DOC Class Field Values 

              dr("FullName") = cFDFDoc.FDFGetValue("FullName") & "" 

              dr("Email") = cFDFDoc.FDFGetValue("Email") & "" 

              dr("City") = cFDFDoc.FDFGetValue("City") & "" 

              dr("State") = cFDFDoc.FDFGetValue("State") & "" 

              dr("Country") = cFDFDoc.FDFGetValue("Country") & "" 

              ' ADD ROW TO DATA TABLE 


              ' UPDATE DATASET 


              End If 

              End Sub
