I'm trying to import an xml into excel 2007 but I am getting results where the xml is on more than one line.
Here is the schema:
  <?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <!--  edited with XML Spy v4.4 U (http://www.xmlspy.com) by Beccy Boyd (Telelogic Technologies UK Ltd)
  -->
- <xs:schema targetNamespace="http://www.DOORSTDIntegration.com/IntegrationDatasetConfiguration.xsd" xmlns:msdata="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-msdata" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://www.DOORSTDIntegration.com/IntegrationDatasetConfiguration.xsd" xmlns:mstns="http://www.DOORSTDIntegration.com/IntegrationDatasetConfiguration.xsd" elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="qualified" id="IntegrationDatasets">
- <xs:element name="IntegrationDatasets" msdata:IsDataSet="true" msdata:EnforceConstraints="False">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:choice>
  <xs:element name="DataFormatVersion" minOccurs="0" />
- <xs:element name="IntegrationDataset" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:sequence>
  <xs:element name="DOORSDatabaseId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="DOORSDatabaseName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="TDDatabaseName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="IntegrationDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="IntegrationDatasetName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="DOORSDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="TDDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="ControllingApp" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="LastSynchronizedDate" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="LastModifiedDate" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
- <xs:element name="AttributeMapping" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:sequence>
  <xs:element name="DOORSAttrib" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="TDAttrib" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="Source" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
- <xs:element name="SyncSchedule" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
- <xs:complexType>
- <xs:sequence>
  <xs:element name="StartDate" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="StartTime" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="Frequency" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
  <xs:element name="DatasetVersion" type="xs:string" />
  </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
  </xs:choice>
  </xs:complexType>
- <xs:key name="IntegrationDatasetsKey1" msdata:PrimaryKey="true">
  <xs:selector xpath=".//mstns:IntegrationDataset" />
  <xs:field xpath="mstns:IntegrationDatasetId" />
  </xs:key>
  </xs:element>
  </xs:schema>

After importing to excel each of the fields of the fields is created on a  new row.  I want it to be in the same row.
<xs:element name="DOORSDatabaseId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="DOORSDatabaseName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="TDDatabaseName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="IntegrationDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="IntegrationDatasetName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="DOORSDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="TDDatasetId" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="ControllingApp" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="LastSynchronizedDate" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
  <xs:element name="LastModifiedDate" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0" />
- <xs:element name="AttributeMapping" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">

Here is a sample of the data:
  <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?> 
- <IntegrationDatasets xmlns="http://www.DOORSTDIntegration.com/IntegrationDatasetConfiguration.xsd">
  <DataFormatVersion>3</DataFormatVersion>

  </SyncSchedule>
  </IntegrationDataset>

Is there another way I can do this?
Basically what I have is two xmls that have a unique key between the two of them.
I want to merge those two xmls on that key.
I would prefer to put the result into a spreadsheet.

If you want to fine-tune the import, then this article may be for you. It explains how to programmatically import XML data in excel and transform it on the fly using XSLT to better suit the target: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307021

> No solution for 2007
I don't understand. What do you mean by that? Have you tried the link I showed you?

It is the custom at EE to not delete questions that have a discussion thread. If there's no solution, then that's the solution: no solution. But you didn't follow-up with additional comments for what you were after or why the info did not apply, so I have to object to the delete request.

See how to close questions for more info or ask here if anything is unclear.

The solution proposed was for 2002/2003 and not excel 2007.
I no longer want to pursue this as I have started using swiftxml.

aha, I see. The solution worked for any office version, from 2002. But if you want to drop this, I consider it against EE policy: after all, even when you decide to drop it and take a different path, the question on itself is still valid and warrants an answer. Maybe not for you, but for the EE Archive this is important.

Please use #24174836 as answer. I was the only one to comment on this question and I haven't been given sufficient information why that comment would not be a viable answer.
