Excel can import XML files.

Once you have it in Excel, you can export it to text or csv (it will depend on the format of the data).

If excel detects it as numbers, it will remove the preceding 0s.

You'll have to somehow convert these numbers to text by encapsulating them within double quotes.

Or if you have the XSD (the schema definition file) for the XML, then you should be able to change the datatype in the XSD.

Upload a sample if you can.
