MS Money XML Report Format


Colin Smale

Does anyone know where I can find a formal description of the XML report
format Microsoft Money uses when you save a report as XML? I am thinking
of an XML Schema or DTD, but a textual description would be good (or
possibly even better) as well.

I have had a look at a few examples from my own Money file and it
doesn't look too complex. But as I want to parse these files in my own
program, I would like to understand all the possible permutations and
combinations which could be produced under a whole range of
circumstances. I've googled the net to death but to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any pointers!

I'm not sure whether there is one, it seems to be a bit adhoc.

<MoneyReport /> seems to be around the report, but the rest of the report
doesn't seem to be formal at all. The only DTD files on the system regards
Money are OFX ones.

Fortunately the XML is well formed, so i suppose you could generate a schema
automatically from the reports generated.
