Re:  Variations in XML to CSV
It's hard to know from this description why you are struggling. There are zillions of examples of XSLT stylesheets to convert XML to CSV out there in google-land, and many of them work. I'd suggest you write some code that you find promising, and if it doesn't work then we'll tell you why. It's only when we see non-working code that we can work out where you went wrong in your thinking.

Of course, we also need to know what CSV output you want to produce. There are many different ways, for example, of handling the repeating element "subject".

Hi all,
thanks for taking a moment to read.

I'm trying to generate a CSV file from XML that looks something like this:


I'm at a complete loss. I've been reading (and rereading) examples
from the XSLT Cookbook, but I haven't been able to make the examples
jive with what I'm looking at on my screen. Is this even possible? If
so, would someone mind giving me a push in the right direction?

I've been able to generate a dummy XML file that has a complete set of
all the elements:
If I use this to generate a row of column names, I think I can map the
variable elements to their respective columns provided I can get that
aforementioned push. Maybe it needs to be a kick...

Thanks again for reading.
