How to retrieve XML from Jars or AutoTag Template


Retrieving XML From Jars

The Java engine has always supported retrieval of XML files from a Jar, in DOCX, PPTX, and XLSX using

' RunReport from_file.docx report.xml -xml "jar:file:c:/test/from_file.docx!/data/order.xml" '.

The .NET engine and AutoTag now also support this.

Retrieving XML From An AutoTag Template

Along with the "jar:file: ..." URL, AutoTag (but not the engines) can use "self:/data/order.xml" to pull the data from the file it is editing (DOCX, PPTX, and XLSX only).
