Create a Sepa XML File

I use Chilkat XML to create the Sepa XML code as its more structured and easier to follow. You can also replicate this code in Microsoft XML. This example is used from an access database I will post a sample Excel file which is used to generate an XML file with the associated code.

To start you will need a header recordset which summarises the party being debited,the total value and number of transactions.

You can use this code to process you direct debits from Sage line 50 by taking the account balances from a given date. Connect to Sage using the ODBC connection to get the customer balances.
