How to convert XML to Excel

XML and Excel are both extensively used for storing and exchanging data, but are very different in structure. XML is text structured in the form of a tree and Excel is proprietary data structured in the form of one or more tables. However you can easily convert XML to Excel format with Easy Data Transform:

Example XML input:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Example Excel output:

Excel from XML

The dot (‘.’) character is used to show nesting of XML values and XML attribute values start with an underscore (‘_’). For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <record carb="2" cholesterol="5" fiber="0" 
          name="Avocado Dip" protein="1" sodium="210">

Will be ‘flattened’ into Excel as:

You can use a Rename Cols transform if you want to rename any of the columns before output.

If you have a large number of files to convert you can do it using batch processing.

As well as changing file format, Easy Data Transform also allows you to combine 66 transforms (such as merge, dedupe and filter) to quickly and easily create simple or complex data transformations.
