Complete noob questions

Complete noob questions

(OP)
O.K. i have never tried to write an XML page from scratch and not sure if that is even what i need to do. let me give the skinny and then maybe someone can help or point me in a good direction.

I have a Docuemnt managemnet application that can output index vaules of a document into many forms. one of those is an .xml page.
 What i need to do is take these exported numerical values, add some of them together, and then compare that sum to 1 of the other exported values. i can then make an .xml file (or use the same exported one) and have the Document system read the returned value on the above equation. preferably i would like for it to return a yes or no as to if the values add up to the final value.

If anyone could help or even point me in the right direction i would really appreciate it. i have been trying for over a week to come up with a solution to this, including uses vbscript, javascript, cmd line calculation in windows, etc. and just can not find a way to complete this (what i thought would be a) simple task.

RE: Complete noob questions

start in dreamweaver, it will help you with the most basic essentials of a XML page.
