Dear List,

Do you know any way I can convert XML parameters into column headers. My data is in a csv file with each row containing a xml form of data , and multiple parameters (

<param1> data_val1 </param2> , <param2> data_val2 </param2> )

I want to convert it so each row caters to one record and each parameter becomes a different column.

                  param1           param2
Row1           data_val1       data_val2

What is the most efficient way for doing this. Apologize for the duplicate email , but this is an emergency with loads of files for me !!!

Regards,

Ajay
