How to Create XML From an iSeries File

iSeries refers to the AS/400 business management tool that keeps data for all your branches of business. While AS/400 is a popular program for business, it can't be viewed by anyone. However, XML data can be viewed by anyone who has a simple text-editor, so no special programs are needed. XML can also be manipulated in ways that AS/400 can't be, such as building a colourful display or a table for the information.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Launch your iSeries program via "Start," "Programs" then "iSeries AS/400."

  2. 2

    Go into the "Admin" function through the first page. Select the "Export" function from the Admin page.

  3. 3

    Push "3" on your keyboard for "XML" to make an AS/400 XML document. This will convert all the data into XML.
