If a value is not specified for the Destination parameter, then this parameter specifies whether or not to overwrite data that has been mapped to the schema map specified in the ImportMap parameter. Set to true to overwrite the data or false to append the new data to the existing data. The default value is true. If a value is specified for the Destination parameter, then this parameter specifies whether or not to overwrite existing data. Set to true to overwrite existing data or false to cancel the import if data would be overwritten. The default value is true.

Destination
Type: System.Object

The data will be imported into a new XML list at the Range specified.

Do not specify a value for the Destination parameter if you want to import data into an existing mapping.

The following conditions will cause this method to generate run-time errors:

  • The specified XML data contains syntax errors.
