Accessing raw xml from list's RSS feed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been trying to use a list's RSS feed as a datasource to read its data, treating the rss url like you would a normaly xml file.  The URL of the list is http://server/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List={E85B8062-3A4D-40C6-8D75-4D9FD5265D50}.  I was expecting this url to return xml representing all the records in the list but it links to a subscription page. I know I can browse to many RSS feeds and view the xml in my browser.  I was expecting to do this with a lists RSS feed.  Am I misunderstanding how this works?


     When I subscribe to the feed with Outlook, Outlook is somehow able to retrieve the individual record and fields.  Can anyone tell me how I can use this URL to get at all the records and columns? 


    I'm trying to find a quick way to import list data into a data warehousing project.
