Sandeep AswathanarayanaSubject: To generate a csv file from xml file using xslt
Author: Sandeep Aswathanarayana

Hello,
I want to generate a out.csv file from an xml file using XSLT.

<xsl:output method="xml"/>

I tried giving the output method as csv - <xsl:output method="csv"/>
but did not work out.

Pls suggest a solution to the above described problem.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Sandeep,
CSV is not an XML-based format, so you should not use it as the output method. And CSV is not a valid output method for XSLT. If you want to manually generate it, you should use the TEXT output method.
Or a better way would be to generate an XML having a 3-level hierarchy like

<anyroot>
<anyrowname>
<anyfieldname1>value1.1</anyfieldname1>
<anyfieldname2>value1.2</anyfieldname2>
...
</anyrowname>
<anyrowname>
<anyfieldname1>value2.1</anyfieldname1>
<anyfieldname2>value2.2</anyfieldname2>
...
</anyrowname>
...
</anyroot>

and then use the XML Converters that are bundled with Stylus Studio to have it converted into a CSV file, just by saving the result to a special URI converter:CSV?file://c:\sample.csv

Hope this helps,
Alberto
