Exporting Specific Feature Dataset to xml workspace document

Discussion created by kjohn on Aug 28, 2012
Hi,
I need to routinely export two feature datasets to xml workspace docs.   I found the following code   that exports the first dataset found in the workspace, but don't know how to use the names enumerator to get a specific dataset by name:

        Dim factoryType As Type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("esriDataSourcesGDB.SdeWorkspaceFactory")
        Dim workspaceFactory As IWorkspaceFactory = CType(Activator.CreateInstance(factoryType), IWorkspaceFactory)
        Dim workspace As IWorkspace = workspaceFactory.OpenFromFile(sdeconnPath, 0)
        Dim workspaceDataset As IDataset = CType(workspace, IDataset)
        Dim workspaceName As IName = workspaceDataset.FullName()

        'Retrieve the first feature dataset from the workspace.
        Dim enumDatasetName As IEnumDatasetName = workspace.DatasetNames(esriDatasetType.esriDTFeatureDataset)
        enumDatasetName.Reset()
        Dim featureDatasetName As IName = CType(enumDatasetName.Next(), IName)
        If featureDatasetName Is Nothing Then
            Throw New Exception("No feature datasets exist in the specified geodatabase.")
        End If

        ' Create a new names enumerator and add the feature dataset name.
        Dim enumNameEdit As IEnumNameEdit = New NamesEnumerator()
        enumNameEdit.Add(featureDatasetName)
        Dim enumName As IEnumName = CType(enumNameEdit, IEnumName)

        ' Create a GeoDBDataTransfer object and create a name mapping.
        Dim geoDBDataTransfer As IGeoDBDataTransfer = New GeoDBDataTransfer()
        Dim enumNameMapping As IEnumNameMapping = Nothing
        geoDBDataTransfer.GenerateNameMapping(enumName, workspaceName, enumNameMapping)

        ' Create an exporter and export the dataset with binary geometry, not compressed,
        ' and including metadata.
        Dim gdbXmlExport As IGdbXmlExport = New GdbExporter()
        gdbXmlExport.ExportDatasets(enumNameMapping, outputXmlFile, True, False, True)
    End Sub


What I would like to do is export a dataset called "Features" and a dataset called "Network" into a single xml workspace doc.  Any help would be very much appreciated..  Thanks
