XmlTextWriter and whitespace

    I've a routine that exports a DB query to Excel by building an
    XmlDocument and saving to a XmlTextWriter.

    The function works but new lines don't show up, i.e. significant
    whitespace is cut. I've tried adding WriteAttributeString("xml",
    "space", null, "preserve") to the XmlTextWriter just prior to save, but
    that results in the error: "Index was outside the bounds of the array."

    Can anyone assist?

    Many thanks,

    Hi Simon:

    Have you tried setting the PreserveWhitespace property on your
    XmlDocument object to true?
