Thanks Ludo, have fixed those.

You are correct. I had explicitly left it as a . - must have taken a ,
for a . when tired.

What a ridiculous idea, to generate different exports for the same data
depending on what country you are in.

I might just leave it in US format as a . - this will at least
create a consistent format and allow import by US/Anglophone countries.
What do you

Better yet, I'll have a look at how newer versions of Access and ADO.NET
do this,
maybe MS have fixed this since then.
If anyone wants to try exporting to XML with inline XSD in newer
versions of Access, please do; you can e.g. paste the XML on
and send me a reminder. Thanks.

What's also strange is that currency fields don't have a currency symbol
(e.g. €); I've got Dutch settings with . as thousands separator - no
trace of a . in currency output. But it does output , as a decimal
marker, not .
Once again, I'll look at how newer Access versions and ADO.Net do this.
