If you have a well formatted xls document then there is no reason to convert it to xml all you need to do is import the xls document into ssis.

If you have excel, open the file and save it as in xml format and upload it, everything should work.

I tried this VB code but it does not work

         Dim dt As New DataTable()
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        dt.Columns.Add("Currency", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Legal Entity", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Account id", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Movement", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Value date", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Narration", String.Empty.GetType())
        dt.Columns.Add("Counterparty", String.Empty.GetType())
        ds.Tables.Add(dt)
        Dim FILE_NAME As String = "C:\Users\anthonio.booysen\xmltest.xml"
        Dim objWriter As New System.IO.StreamWriter(FILE_NAME)
        objWriter.Write(ds.GetXml)
        objWriter.Close()
