Can an XML file be used as the master-detail relationship?

Can an XML file be used as the master-detail relationship?

i,

I thought it was necessary to continue the thread but changed the subject to
reflect a new entry.

I see you talk about the XML being set up correctly for "master-detail"
relationships - does this mean that I have to repeat the master key field in
the detail portion of the XML?

I have an XML that partially looks likes this:
----
<report>
<department>A</department>
<departpmemtn>
<introductions>
<introduction seq=1.0>texttextext</introduction>
<introduction seq=2.0>texttextext</introduction>
<introduction seq=2.0>texttextext</introduction>
<introductions>
<issues>
<issue seq=1.0>texttextext</issue>
<issue seq=2.0>texttextext</issue>
<issues>
</report>
--

I need to relate the department to the introductions and the issues. In the
form, I have a list of department that when selected must display al the
introductions and the issues stored in this XML in two separate repeating
tables. How do I link the master table containing the list of departments to
the detail table(s)? Do I have to add the department field in the form (and
the XML) ?
Regards,
Bowie M
