XML Import Limitation

Post by JonRPotter » 16 Jun 2008, 03:54

I'm working on a project that requires importing a lot of data (2000+ records)into a Quark document and I want to use the Avenue.quark importing tools. However, past a certain size (~300 KB), the process slows down considerably and sometimes never completes. Has anyone found a work-around for this or a way to import sequentially? (I suspect that the entire xml document is imported, so load increases expotentially based on the file size).
Edit: I should probably specify the environment. I am using Quark 7.31 on Windows XP.
