MLS Data Processing

I don't know if you're still working on this but I though I'd offer something I wrote to parse the MLS files. I created a specific DataAdapter that takes as inputs one or more of the exported files from MLS and then forms them in a simple set of DataTables with appropriate referential integrity. It does a lot of work to clean up the data and make the right connections between people, families, and assignments.

I use that adapter in another application to create different files (XML, XLS, SDF, MDB) that can then be pulled off and given to organization leads to manipulate. You can find the library and the app at http://ldswardinfo.org. If you would like the source code, let me know and I'll create a project here to post it.
