How do I create an XML file from an XLS spreadsheet?

I have an XSD schema file that I have used XMLSpy to generate a sample XML file with.

I have a spreadsheet with data in it and I would like to put the data into an XML file that fits the format of the sample I have generated from the schema.

Would I use Altova Mapforce for this? If so would I use my sample XML as my source or target? Do I point the arrows from the XLS into the XML or the other way around in the mapping or is there another way to do it?


Thanks,
Bobby

You can save a spreadsheet as an XML file. The XML file will be to a specific standard which you should be able to use with any good mapping tool.

In Excel, you File|Save As  and choose XML as the file type.

The XML format saved by Excel is Microsoft's format. You would use a tool to translate that to whatever format you wanted.
