RE: CSV to XML


php csv to xml
If you have your data in one format and need it in another format, you need
your data transformed. If you don't want to write it yourself and would
prefer to use an existing utility, I would ask whoever came up with your
target format if they have anything. If they don't, no one will. 

I really can't picture how starting with CSV would be any easier than
starting with XML, unless you're new to XML transformations (whether by
XSLT, SAX, or whatever) in general.

Subject:  CSV to XML

I have sort of given up to get a Word Table into XML, OK I can get XML from
a Word Table, but it's not the format I want it in, I can't be bothered to
write some complicated transformation either.

Is there no way that anyone can think of to get the following CSV into the
following XML structure?

Message Header,M,,, ,,,,,,
,,Header Data,ZHD,Uniquely identifies the message type,M,,,,, ,,,,Must be =
'ASC201',,0018,M,V172,,HDa ,,,,,,,,V337,, ,,,,,,,,V338,, ,,,,Message version
,,0019,M,,,HDb ,,,,Message trace number ,,0016,M,,P027,HDc ,,Company
id,ZCO,"Company details - name, type, class, etc",M,,,,, ,,,,Company name
(including legal elements),,0006,C,V276,N003,01a ,,,,,,,,V280,N120, ,,,,Not
used for Form 201,,0007,U,,,01b ,,,,Company type,,0022,M,V025,,01c
,,,,Company class,,0022,M,V027,N005,01d ,,,,,,,,V327,N073,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <root>
	<message name="201">
		<group 
			name="messageHeader"
