I have a provider that is looking to query our Database and pull an XML file, but they're requiring that it is generated in a specific format (very similar to the current, standard, XML output of reports but with certain variations). 

Is it possible to generate an XML file with a different format that can be accessed and downloaded?

I was thinking using something like Exact Forms, but would appreciate any help.

On the report settings, go to options and for format, select XML (flat) or XML (Structured). QuickBase has your back covered!

I did but I actually need a certain different format, like changing the "<record>" tags to another name, and removing some of the header tags..

I'm not sure if this will help, but if you export to excel and are able to make your changes there, I believe that excel can export in XML format.
