Codenamed Shiloh, the forthcoming release of the data-base is due to appear some time next year and is likely to require Windows 2000.
XML has already been integrated into other Microsoft products, including Office 2000, which the company said last week would ship on 8 June in the UK. Pricing has not yet been announced.
Office 2000 will be available in five different editions: Small Business, Standard, Professional, Premium and Developer.
