an XML file, called agents.xml, containing the details of at least 5 travel agents. The structure of the file is as follows:
<agents>
<agent eno="" name="">
<address>
<line1></line1>
<line2></line2>
<line3></line3>
<postcode></postcode>
<region></region >
<country></country>
<address>
</agent>
</agents>
How to populate a Microsoft Access database with the agents details and to read the data from the database in the correct order for displaying.
