Currently the data saved in XML is formatted according to the layout syntax of the field. Since we do not always want to show the end user the evry last decimal place of the data, this can cause the transfer of data between components to change the underlying data in the database. xmlsave/raw would allow for the data to be saved to the highest precision of the underlying data type, xmlload would presumably not need to be altered.

Use Case

Transfer of the data from the data layer, through the business layer to the presentation layer and back again without the layout of the business layer affecting the data. Thus allowing for full client server implementation.


I can find no sensible work around which preserves my data integrity and yet shows the end user tailored data. This is causing me to have to use loops many lines of code to sensibly transport data which would be better done with a simple xmlsave/xmlload.
