Use the following URL to get XML of list:-


{0} – The URL to your site.  This could be the root web or a child site.

{1} – The GUID for your list. 

To find the GUID for a list, just go to the Settings page for the list and copy it from the URL.

Use the following URL to get XML of list view:

In addition to viewing a list using the Cmd=Display command in the URL request, you can also return all data for a SharePoint list, but based on a specific view from that list, by adding the &View={ViewGuid} to the URL request, like the following:

http://{yoursite}/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?Cmd=Display&List={list GUID}&View={ViewGuid}&XMLDATA=TRUE

where: {ViewGuid} : is the GUID of the list view.
