q: as/400 idiot-proof xml conversion tool

does anyone know if software exists for the as/400 platform that would
make it easy for an as/400 database administrator to convert an xml
document to a flat file before mapping that flat file into their
database?  we're looking for something that is a GUI or command line
commercial product ready to work 'out of the box'.
the issue is that we provide an xml document to our customers and they
don't have the expertise to input that xml into their database - if
there was a tool available for them (they are NOT tech-savvy), then they
might be able to convert the xml into a flat file on the as/400 in the
format that they need to do the database insert.  also, it would be
wonderful if this xml tool could also do the reverse and convert a flat
file into an xml document for them to give us.... am I dreaming?
thanks for your time,

p/s - I've been all over www.xmlsoftware.com but cannot find a tool that
fits this scenario.. most tools appear to be java or Perl modules that
you drop in to your existing projects...
